Everton have been handed a boost after Victor Anichebe and Seamus Coleman penned new deals at the club.
As exclusively revealed by skysports.com earlier this week , Anichebe was set to sign a new deal to end speculation over his future and Coleman has followed suit.
Both players have signed new four-and-a-half-year contracts which will keep them at Goodison Park until 2015.
Young Nigeria striker Anichebe, who was due to be out of contract in the summer, had been linked with a move away from the Merseyside club.
However, the 22-year-old has always insisted he was keen to stay with the Toffees, telling skysports.com in December that he had no plans to leave David Moyes' side.
Coleman, also 22, only penned a new contract at the Premier League club in May last year, but has impressed enough this term to be handed another extension on his deal.
He joined the Toffees from Sligo Rovers for £60,000 in 2009 and, after a loan spell at Blackpool last year, has now established himself as a regular in the first team.
Irish winger or full-back Coleman has made 22 appearances this campaign, scoring five goals, while academy product Anichebe, who has struggled with injuries over the past two seasons, has made three starts and three substitute appearances.
The news gives Everton a welcome lift following the loss of influential midfielder Steven Pienaar to Tottenham earlier this week.
