Everton officially announced defender Seamus Coleman has signed a new five-year contract through the 2022 season.
The 28-year-old was originally due to sign the deal after returning from the international break in March, but the Republic of Ireland international suffered a broken leg that will likely see him miss the rest of the year. However, the club had no reservations about issuing a five-year contract given his track record. Coleman becomes the second Everton player after Dominic Calvert-Lewis to sign a new contract this week. Said Coleman: "I’m really excited by the way things are going and the players we have signed. This season has been good and we’ve got Europa League football next season to look forward to. It’s exciting and it’s all about pushing ourselves. I’m really happy that I am going to be here for the foreseeable future." May 5 - 11:34 PM

Seamus Coleman is likely to miss the rest 2017 after sustaining a double leg fracture during Friday night’s World Cup qualifier against Wales in Dublin.

The Everton wing-back was on the receiving end of a horrific Neil Taylor challenge which left Coleman sprawled on the Aviva Stadium turf with Shane Long comforting his international teammate before being stretchered off. Coleman will have surgery, most likely a plate and screw method, to fix the fracture. Typically, recovery from this type of injury will physically take around 9 months, although the timeline can be affected by setbacks or complications during rehab. However, psychologically it may take a little longer for Coleman to return to the peak of his game. Following a similar injury in 2010, Aaron Ramsey admitted he didn’t feel fully confident and back to his best until three years later. We wish Coleman all the very best and a speedy recovery.

Everton wing-back and Republic of Ireland captain Seamus Coleman has undergone surgery after suffering a horrific injury in his country's World Cup Qualifier on Friday night.

Coleman sustained the double leg fracture after a reckless challenge by Aston Villa's Neil Taylor in the 0-0 draw in Dublin. He went through surgery on Saturday morning to have screws inserted into his right leg to help the healing process. The extent of the injury means that the Irish skipper may not play again until 2018, and rules out any chance of a summer move which had been rumoured owing to his consistency and brilliance this season for club and country alike. Instead, the 28 year-old will go through months of rehabilitation to get back on the pitch and continue his sparkling career.

Everton suffered a major blow on Friday night with Seamus Coleman suffering a broken leg while on international duty.

The right-back was taken on a stretcher in the 68th minute of the Republic of Ireland's 0-0 draw against Wales on Friday in an international friendly and was taken to the hospital. Now Coleman faces a lengthy rehabilitation period after put together a good season for the Toffees, including four goals and three assists. Said Ireland manager Martin O'Neill: "It's a bad break. Seamus is a fantastic player and character - it's a major blow for the lad, for his club and for us. Apparently it wasn't the best challenge in the world - I haven't seen it back - but naturally disappointed. He's gone to hospital and I think it's broken. I saw Seamus' reaction - he was holding his leg up and it didn't look good."

Seamus Coleman scored a late first half equalizer as Everton came from behind to pick up a point on the road against Stoke City.

Seamus Coleman seems to have rediscovered his goalscoring boots. After scoring twice in the first half of the season the right back has doubled that total over the past two Premier League matches. There was a hint of offsides about the goal as Romelu Lukaku was near Coleman's shot in an offside position but was judged not to have interfered as the Ireland international's shot found the net. Coleman's goal equalized an early strike from former Liverpool man Peter Crouch.

Everton waited until the end to steal three points from Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park thanks to Seamus Coleman.

The right-back rummaged down the wing, where youth star Tom Davies found the Irish international with a through ball. Coleman collected himself and fired a shot past Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey for the match-winner, his fourth goal of the season, in the 87th minute make it three wins on the trot for the Toffees and five straight Premier League matches without a loss. For once, Everton didn't need the help of Romelu Lukaku, who entered the match with three goals in his last four league matches. With the win, Everton now moves five points back of sixth-place Manchester United, who drew at Stoke.

Seamus Coleman is expected to be in the Everton lineup against Watford this weekend, according to Ronald Koeman.

The right-back only just returned to training on Thursday after sustaining a knock that saw him leave the club's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday. But Koeman said the Irish international came through training without an issue and is set to be available for the weekend:"Seamus is okay. He did a normal first training session today. In the beginning of the week he still had some pain but it looks positive. Normally I’d expect him to be available for the match."

Everton responded from its 5-0 thrashing at Stamford Bridge before the break to earn a point in a 1-1 draw with Swansea City.

The Toffees went behind in the first half after captain Phil Jagielka clumsily bowled over Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson inside the box that led to a penalty, which the Icelandic international put away easily to go into the half with a 1-0 lead. But it was Seamus Coleman who righted his fellow defender's wrong with a last-gasp effort in the 89th minute. Following a scramble in the penalty area, a poor Swansea City clearance dropped to the right-back near the six-yard box before heading the ball just past Lukasz Fabianski and into the top corner to steal the point.

Jose Mourinho is rumoured to be interested in Everton's Irish right back Seamus Coleman.

Mourinho joins a succession of United bosses who have apparently wanted to being the Republic of Ireland captain to Old Trafford after both Moyes and Van Gaal also rated him. At present, converted winger Antonio Valencia is in the last year of his contract, but Manchester United have the option to extend it to June 2018. However, the Ecuadorian is 31 and his only cover is Timothy Fosu-Mensah, whose preferred position is central midfield. It seems that the stage is set for a new right back then, and Coleman has enjoyed a great start to the season under Ronald Koeman after a poor term under Martinez in 2015/16. Antoine Griezmann and Danny Drinkwater are also on Mourinho's shortlist.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed the full fitness of one club regular following injury in Seamus Coleman.

However, Koeman revealed midfielder James McCarthy needed surgery to fix a groin problem that will keep him out for a few weeks. Coleman missed the first three matches of the season after suffering an ankle injury in the preseason but has now been cleared to start for the club against former manager David Moyes' Sunderland side. Said Koeman: "He was fit to play [for Ireland] and he came back without any reaction. He is fit to start. James McCarthy had groin surgery and will be out for three weeks."

Ronald Koeman confirms Seamus Coleman will be missing for "several weeks" after suffering an ankle injury.

The Republic of Ireland international was singled out as "doubt" during Thursdays pre-match press conference, but further tests indicate the injury is far worse than originally feared, and Coleman is set for an extended period on the side-lines. With Ashley Williams short of match-fitness, Koeman named an attacking line-up with Mason Holgate making his senior debut in a back three. Phil Jagielka, himself a doubt following a pre-season hamstring strain, was passed fit while Funes Mori made up the trio. Romelu Lukaku also missed the opener after failing to recover from the heel injury he sustained against Espanyol, that despite the managers’ optimism earlier this week.

Seamus Coleman has denied he missed the [Premier League] season run-in to ensure his fitness ahead of the European Championships.

Coleman had been side-lined since tweaking his hamstring in the draw with Southampton at Goodison Park back in April. But, the 27-year-old returned to action, playing 90 minutes for the Republic of Ireland in a friendly against Holland at the end of May, prompting many to question whether he had avoided Everton’s remaining games to minimise any risk of recurrence before Euro 2016. "I missed the FA Cup semi-final [against Manchester United] and I missed the derby with Liverpool so no," he said. "If I could have played, I would have. I had a scan and it just wasn’t right. I possibly could have played the last game but what’s the point in risking it with the big summer ahead." Ireland take on Sweden in their opening game of the tournament on June 13.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has another defensive dilemma on his hands with three right-backs injured prior to Wednesday's match.

Seamus Coleman has missed the last three weeks with a hamstring injury while Tyias Browning also suffered an injury in training that has kept him out of action. But now Tony Hibbert has suffered an ankle injury just after coming back from a season-long knee injury. Bryan Oviedo and Muhamed Besic has filled in at right back in recent weeks while Matthew Pennington has been forced into the back-line without Phil Jagielka and Brendan Galloway. But the news gets better this week with Ramiro Funes Mori back into the fold following his three-match ban.

Everton is still waiting on the fitness of key starters Seamus Coleman and Gareth Barry ahead of the club's double gameweek.

Barry has missed the last two matches due to a knock while Coleman has been less fortunate in his recovery, missing much of the last three weeks with a hamstring injury. While Roberto Martinez said they might not be available to face Leicester City on Saturday, the manager is confident the duo will return at some point in the remaining three matches: "Gareth and Seamus have got an outside chance of being involved at the weekend but I feel quite confident they will be involved one way or another before the season ends."

Everton will be looking to shore up its defensive options with Ramiro Funes Mori and Seamus Coleman ruled out for the weekend.

Manager Roberto Martinez ruled out Coleman with a hamstring injury for the club's FA Cup semifinal this weekend against Manchester United, which reports suggest could be the manager's final chance at keeping his job on Merseyside. With Funes Mori also suspended, Martinez may have to get creative with his back-line. Bryan Oviedo started at right-back in the midweek match against Liverpool while Muhamed Besic also filled in at center-back. Phil Jagielka is likely to miss the weekend with a hamstring injury but Martinez wanted to give the captain one more chance at a fitness test.
