Seamus Coleman has signed a new contract with Everton that will see him remain with the club until 2019.
There was some talk of another club swooping in to grab the Irish right back, but Coleman and Everton have made a successful marriage thus far and his attacking ability is not the easiest thing to replace at his position. Roberto Martinez recently inked a five year deal himself to stay at Goodison Park and Leighton Baines is sticking around as well so the nucleus of the club remains intact. Jun 26 - 5:20 PM

Seamus Coleman was one of two Everton defenders to register an own goal and that was all it took for Southampton to take the points in a match the Toffees could not afford to lose as their chase for a Champions League spot took a major hit in a 2-0 loss.

Everton were immediately behind the eight ball when, in the opening minute, Antolin Alcaraz perhaps showed a bit of rust heading a Ricky Lambert cross perfectly into the wrong goal. A half hour later, it was Coleman's turn, as he directed a Nathaniel Clyne cross into the Toffees own net. The defense almost cost them again in the second half when John Stones nearly was called for hand ball. Meanwhile, the attack could not break the Southampton line as Romelu Lukaku was either off target or shooting directly at Artur Boruc. With Arsenal hosting a struggling Newcastle side, odds are Everton will be four points behind them with only two matches to play.

In a heated contest between Everton and Cardiff City, it was a goal from Seamus Coleman in the final moments that gave the Toffees a thrilling 2-1 win.

Everton were threatening all afternoon, but the match was goalless at halftime as Cardiff's keeper David Marshall made three top notch saves. Gerard Deulofeu made a sprint down the left flank and beat Marshall to get Everton finally on the board in the 59th minute. Cardiff then would equalize ten minutes later setting up an edge-of-your-seat final twenty minutes at Goodison Park. With under a minute of stoppage time left, Aiden McGeady sent a cross to the far post which Gareth Barry redirected back into the middle of the box where Coleman was there to strike home in dramatic fashion. With a double gameweek against Swansea and Newcastle, both of whom were in bad form today, be sure to grab some Toffees for your XI.

"Seamus Coleman has come through training really well" according to Everton manager Roberto Martinez, signaling a return at fullback for the Toffees XI this weekend against Tottenham Hotspur.

Coleman made a surprise return to the Everton bench last week, but that may have been more out of necessity than anything else, as Martinez was very short on defenders for that match. With Crystal Palace at home following this weekend's trip to Spurs, it would be best to take a "wait and see" approach and scoop him up quickly should he look promising and fit against Spurs.

An update on the injury to Everton fullback Seamus Coleman has been released. According to Everton's official website, he has a "minor soft tissue injury."

The update does not go beyond that, with no timetable for his return. However, when taken into the consideration the phrasing of the injury, Coleman's willingness to play through knocks, and with a ten day layoff between Premier League matches, there seems to be every possibility he could return in time for the Merseyside Derby. John Stones is the likeliest candidate to deputize should Coleman fail to return in time.

Seamus Coleman was substituted out of today's match against West Brom with a hamstring injury. The move may have just been preventative, but Everton will learn more over the coming days.

Coleman, who has been in great form for Everton recently, was replaced by youngster John Stone. Tony Hibbert would be a more natural replacement if Coleman is forced to miss any future matches but there's no one on the roster who can match Coleman's energy and work on both ends of the pitch.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez will reward Republic of Ireland international Seamus Coleman with a raise at the end of the season due to his recent success this season.

Martinez: "I'm sure at the end of the season we will look at his contract. His role in the team is growing, he is getting more important, so we will always look at that. He is happy at Everton and has a long-term contract, but I always said that players that do well and perform...it is my intention to sit down in the summer and reassess. He deserves a reward. He has created at least two good opportunities in every game and has been getting better in taking those chances. He is a young man but younger in football terms because he was such a late developer. The sky is the limit." The 25-year old defender signed a new deal12 months ago, but Martinez wants to raise his £40,000-a-week wage in a bid to fight off interest from other teams. Coleman leads all Premier League defenders with five goals and he's gone the full 90 minutes in every single game this season.

Seamus Coleman has been named on Everton's injury list but it appears very likely that he will pass fit and feature against Chelsea.

Seamus Coleman started off the season with a spectacular match. He was listed on Everton's injury report over the International Break but it appears that he will pull through and feature against Chelsea. He isn't a great fantasy option given the opposition but managers should know that he will at least be playing.

Seamus Coleman did not find the score sheet as Everton and West Brom played to a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park.

But that does not mean he didn't impress. The young RB ran roughshod all over the pitch, seemingly a gear ahead of anyone marking him, and showed no sign of fatigue over the full 90 minutes of the match. He was unlucky to score, narrowly missing a scoring chance in each half. While a reverse out-of-position fantasy option is usually not worth considering, Coleman looks consistently dangerous on the ball, and looks a good fantasy prospect next week against Cardiff City.

Seamus Coleman, playing at right back, assisted on Everton's first goal and scored the go-ahead goal only to see Norwich peg them back for a 2-2 draw.

Generally, Leighton Baines is the Everton fullback making headlines for his attacking play but today it was Seamus Coleman. Coleman initially set up 19 year-old Ross Barkley for goal from outside the 18 yard box to equalize Steve Whittaker's opener. Coleman then pounced on the rebound from a Nikica Jelavic shot to give Everton the lead briefly before Ricky van Wolfswinkel equalized for the final score.

Everton have been linked with a variety of wide players this summer and appear to be getting close to landing one in Spartak Moscow player Aiden McGeady.

McGeady's name has been around Premier League transfer rumors seemingly forever but one has to wonder at his potential at this point. At 27 years old he's no longer a young prospect with upside and his record in Russia's decidedly second tier domestic competition is 10 goals and 20 assists in 60 matches over 3 seasons. Not exactly the sort of player who captures the imagination of supporters looking for reassurances that Roberto Martinez will be able to keep David Moyes' strong track record going. The one potential upside is that it would free up Seamus Coleman to play at right back full time.
