Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has insisted he is happy at the club and has no plans to move on to pastures new this summer.

The USA international has been linked with a return to his homeland over recent weeks, with a few MLS outfits believed to be interested in the veteran’s services.

However, Howard, who joined Everton initially on loan before a permanent switch from Manchester United in 2006, is more than happy seeing out his current deal at Goodison Park which will expire in the summer of 2018.

He was quoted as saying by Everton website noso.co.uk: “It’s a place where I can achieve the things I want to achieve and push myself every day and I am still hungry for the game.

“All of the questions I have been looking for in my career have been answered here. So I think I would like to finish here and then be done.

“I’m living the good life here at Everton and I don’t think I really need to change the scenery.”

Having endured a frustrating spell out of the team through injury, Howard made his return in the narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Premier League leaders Chelsea in their last outing.

Howard is likely to be between the sticks again on Sunday when the Toffees host Leicester City.

Everton are 1.78 to beat the Foxes (4.69) and the draw is 3.39.
