It’s the Welshman’s second professional deal at Goodison Park, following the one-year agreement he penned last summer.
Speaking to EvertonTV, Jones revealed his new contract delight and explained how he now aims to continue the progress he made during a 2014-15 campaign that brought a first-team debut against FC Krasnodar, a loan spell in League Two with Plymouth Argyle and the opportunity to train with Chris Coleman’s Wales senior side ahead of their Euro 2016 qualifier against Belgium.
“I’m over the moon,” Jones said. “I worked hard last year to get this new contract. I’ve been working hard as long as I’ve been here – since I was 13 – and all I want to do is try and play for the first-team.
“I had a little taste of it [last season] and now I want more.
“It was a brilliant experience at Plymouth too and they got into the play-offs. It was good for me because I changed positions to centre midfield where I used to play when I was younger.
“It was good to go down there and get a few league games because it’s a lot different going out on loan compared to playing for the Under-21s.”

I'd be more interested in anyone who'd seen him at Plymouth playing proper football. We've a few lads who seem to have a genuine chance but Jones is a bit of an outsider. It helps that he plays in the position where we've never signed any cover for Coleman, but I'd imagine Martinez would like to loan Jones to a Championship club this season.

So, except against Sunderland's youngster, anyone seen him have a run-out?

Pity our coaches and scouts do not find him!
