Experienced Everton midfielder Lee Carsley has signed a new one-year deal at Goodison Park.
Carsley has made 149 appearances for Everton since February 2002
Carsley, 33, joined the Toffees from Coventry City for £1.9m in 2002.
The Republic of Ireland international was nearing the end of his previous contract and had been linked with a move to Wigan Athletic.
Carsley told Everton's website: "I have had a fantastic time here and hopefully that can continue. We have the Uefa Cup to look forward to now."
He added: "Myself and the gaffer David Moyes sat down two or three months ago and he said he wanted me to stay and I said I wanted to stay as well.
"I am just glad we have come to an agreement. I am absolutely delighted to be honest."
Carsley has played 149 games for Everton, scoring 11 goals.
