Tyias Browning has said that he is delighted to have signed a new contract with Everton.

The 20-year-old defender put pen to paper on a three-year deal that will keep him at Goodison Park until June 2017.

Browning is a versatile defender who can play at right-back or centre-back, and is overjoyed to have committed his long-term future to the Toffees.

"I'm absolutely delighted to sign," he told the club's official website. "I've been here since I was a kid and this new deal shows the faith that the manager and staff have in me.

"I've loved being around the first team. I've learnt so much and I'm ready to kick on when called upon."
