Young Everton striker Ellie Simms has put pen to paper on a new long-term contract with the Merseyside club. It was announced earlier this week that the former Blackpool loan star has signed a contract extension at Goodison Park.
Simms had some months to run on his previous Everton contract which was scheduled to expire at the end of this season. The 20-year-old striker would have been a free agent next summer if he didn't sign a new deal with the Toffees. He has since signed a two-year contract extension to take him to 2024 at the Merseyside club.
