Everton's French defender Sylvain Distin has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him at GoodisonPark until the end of the 2014-15 season, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.
The 36-year-old centre back's current deal was due to expire in June this year, Everton said on their website.
He became the second Everton defender to sign a new deal this week after left back Leighton Baines penned a long-term contract.
Distin arrived at the Merseyside club from Portsmouth in 2009 and has made 177 first-team appearances.
