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.
