The 18-year-old, who only made his first-team debut in April but has impressed hugely, has put pen to paper on the extended deal which no doubt comes with improved terms.
"It's great motivation knowing I'll be here for five years and that I can really push on and hopefully develop to become a really good player for the team and go on to do really well," Davies told evertontv.
"Coming back from the off season and going straight back with the first team has been a good insight for me into what's required of me for the season and to be around the players, play as much as I have and train with them, it's been vital for my progression as a player.
"I just want to become a regular first, that's something I am going to work towards and hopefully with the help of the staff and learning from other players I can get there."
Davies turned heads in the final Premier League game of last season when he made his first senior start in the 3-1 win over Norwich City at Goodison Park which came after he was invited to St George's Park to train with the full England squad.
He has been a consistent presence in Ronald Koeman's pre-season teams and is expected to challenge for a regular role in the senior side this coming season. One of a number of promising youngsters on the brink of the first team, Davies's new contract ties him to the Blues until 2021.

Hope he gets plenty of runouts in cups and cameos in the league but definitely not like a new signing. A signing would be like a new signing.

Always good to have high expectations. I know he's only young but I think a few of the more experienced players had better be on their toes.
Good luck, Tom lad.

Now get the rest of the work done that's needed, Everton.

Well done, Tom, hopefully don't desert us when the vultures start circling in a few years time.

PS Can we ban 'it's like a new signing' from the site? Such a tired joke.
18 Posted 01/08/2016 at 21:29:06
Can we also ban "phenomenal" as well?
Onto the player, has he been taking fashion tips from Leighton?

This is one of the main problems I have with the deals given to the likes of Darren Gibson, he takes valuable playing time from the likes of Davies. Hibbert was the same over past few seasons, he may not have played much, but his game time would have been massive for the likes of Browning or Connolly.
Our youngsters look ready and able to fill the squad rolls of Oviedo, Gibson, Kone, Niasse, and possibly even Barry, not to mention filling the voids left by the departures of Hibbert, Osman and Pienaar.
Garbutt and Galloway can match Oviedo.
Besic and Davies can match Gibson (6 half matches per season) and possibly Barry (especially if we bring someone in as a main starter).
Dowell can replace Osman, Pienaar and Kone as they were all mostly used in a left-sided roll. (Again its only as backup as we need someone signing for that position to challenge Mirallas.)
And anyone who can sit on a bench rubbing their wrist better can replace Niasse.
Anyways, good luck, Tom.

What I like most are not the instinctive touch and incisive passing, though they are especially encouraging as markers of enduring talent, but the air of effortless comfort and style on the pitch. Let us pray that the confidence and flair are not coached out of him, as they have been with Barkley (for the moment).
I see the same with Holgate and I continue to believe that Dowell is a gem too.
These are great signs for us and we should be excited by them.
