Everton FC set to announce Lucas Digne’s contract extension tomorrow

Everton and Lucas Digne have come to an agreement and will tomorrow announce the Frenchman’s new contract which will see his terms extended until 2025, sources close to Premier League Central have been informed.

The former Barcelona fullback has been sensational when fit this season, helping his side in their quest to achieve a top-four finish under Carlo Ancelotti.

The Italian manager made it clear at the start of the new year that Digne is crucial to the Toffees’ future and was backed by the Everton board with no questions asked. The 27-year-old’s terms have been extended until 2025 which could see him stay at the club until his 32nd birthday.

Currently earning £90,000/week, Digne’s new deal sees his earnings jump by £20,000 per week, Premier League Central has been informed.

His raise (£110,000/week) sees him overtake Andy Robertson (£100,000/week) as Merseyside’s highest-paid left-back while Ben Chilwell (£190,000/week) and Luke Shaw (£150,000/week) are the most well-paid left-backs in the division.

Digne has assisted six goals in 16 Premier League games this season, the joint-highest by any PL defender with West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell also making a name for himself this season.
