Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye has signed a new four-year contract at Goodison Park.

The Senegal worldwide, 28, joined the Toffees from Aston Villa on a four-year deal in August 2016.

The 28 year-old Senegal global had been linked with a move to Chelsea last August before the Premier League champion bought Danny Drinkwater from Leicester City.

Prior to Everton's last Premier League game, a win overCrystal Palace, Blues boss Sam Allardyce challenged his players to maintain their home form until the end of the season.

Gueye has made 221 tackles in the Premier League since his Everton debut in August 2016 - 13 more than any other player in the competition.

He said: "Everton is the right place for me and this is why I have signed my new deal".

Gueye added: "I love the fans here".

"I'm really pleased that Idrissa has signed a new deal at the club". It is great for me and for the Club and I am very happy.

"But the love of the fans was really important and this is a really good thing for me. He's been terrific since I've been here and it's fantastic for the Club", said Allardyce.

'We will keep working hard to build on our home record and try to get the same results or similar away from home, too. "I believe in my team and I believe in this club".

The Senegal worldwide has made 29 appearances this campaign and an improved contract had been the subject of attention for the club since the beginning of the season.

'It's great that he's committed long-term to Everton and he will enjoy some of his best football here in the years ahead'.
