Reports: Davies set for new deal

Saturday 1 April 2017  23 Comments  [Jump to last]
Everton are said to be preparing improved terms for rising midfield star Tom Davies just months after he signed a new contract with the club.

The 18-year-old has established himself as a regular starter in Ronald Koeman's team and reports claim that he will be rewarded for his stellar form in the first team with another new deal that would tie him to the Blues until 2022.

Davies penned a five-year contract in early August last year but an announcement confirming that he has agreed to extend that by another year is expected next week if press reports are true.

That's Brilliant news, now get the Barkley contract issue over the line.

We'll have three, maybe four local Blues ripping the RedShite apart at Anfield today.

Fully deserved, I would love him to smash one in today at the Kop.

Hmm – rolling five-year contract.

His rise to promenance has been incredible. We all knew the lad had the talent but to fit in so well is testament to his temperament also.

Yes, Peter, I'd love to look back over the coming years at the 'Davies Derby'.

㿙k a week would be more than fair. I think he's only on 㾻-20k? Could be wrong. Anyone know?

I doubt he is on anywhere near £15-20k unless he signed a contract within the last 6 months or so.

My hopes for this lad are sky high and today could be an interesting test of his mettle. If he acquits himself well, we may well have found our talisman.

Nothing more than he deserves. Not only a young, exiting footballer, but also a stable one. Most youngsters have big form dips, but Davies is keeping it together like a pro. I'm so impressed by this kid. Hand him the Cleverley money and a 5-year deal with extension clauses in them.

5 years is too short. Make it 50. I mean Barry can play at the age of 67, I'm sure Davies can too at 68.

Throughly deserved.

His introduction to the team elevated our performances.

"I doubt he is on anywhere near £15-20k unless he signed a contract within the last 6 months or so."

Peter, he signed a new deal last August. Basically the gist of this is he is getting a pay rise on that deal due to his great form where he'll be extending the 5-year deal he signed August another year. The only reason a club does that is to pay them more money. In other words, this would be his second signing extension beyond his youth contract.

So I'm making an educated guess he signed a 5-year deal for around £15-20k a week back then. If he is being offered an extension, that amount (whatever it is) has to increase.

He's now a senior player, playing regular first team football, this would mean minimum £40-45k a week and that was on our previous wage structure, a structure that thanks to Moshiri, was increased (as evidenced also by Lukaku's getting offered the biggest Everton wage ever).

Give young Tom Davies what the lad wants. He looks the real deal and he's a Evertonian, which is class.

Hopefully Tom will be our captain, leading us into our new stadium on the docks in the near future.

Well done lad. Thoroughly deserved. Great to see you regularly turning out for us. Your Dad and Grandad must be very proud. A real buzz for the family.

Great move from the club to give him a new contract.
A big player in the future of our club.

Can't remember which thread it was on but I think someone said that younger players could seek a release from a contract after 3 years so why a 5 year deal?

Anyone know the details of the get-out clause, so to speak?

He's signed. Made up for him and the club: he has shown his ability, all he needs now is to show it consistently

It's now official that Tom has indeed signed a five-year deal with Everton FC, which is good news as I think Tom will have a major role to play at Goodison in the coming seasons.

Alan. It was me. It's called the Webster ruling. They have to buy themselves out of it they can't just walk away. It's not likely to be used much, if at all, by a player.

But I really don't want to hijack this thread as Tom's signing is very good news indeed! Nice one, Tom.

Great news. Great lad. Great future.

Up the Toffees!

England player in the making good luck Tom for the future, great news.

He has been an absolute breath of fresh air this season and that midfield trio of Gana, Schneiderlin and Davies is up there with the best in the league. More important deals than the Barkley one, in my opinion, to be sorting.

Well deserved, great young player. Let's not put too much expectation on him though.
