Everton have announced that striker Dom Calvert-Lewin has agreed a new five-year deal with the Toffees to keep him at Goodison Park until 2025 amid reported interest from Manchester United – and Harry Maguire has reacted.
Less than a fortnight before his 23rd birthday, Calvert-Lewin has put pen to paper on a new Everton deal with his previous contract expiring in the summer of 2023. He has been in stunning form this season.
Indeed, Calvert-Lewin has scored 13 Premier League goals in 26 outings – and with Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford both injured, he is being linked with a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s side.
His form has been so impressive that The Sun claimed ahead of the January window that Manchester United wanted to sign Calvert-Lewin for a whopping £50million. However, Calvert-Lewin posted on Twitter after agreeing a new deal.

Calvert-Lewin is one of a number of English strikers being talked about with Kane and Rashford missing, along with the likes of Southampton’s Danny Ings, Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham and even Leicester’s Jamie Vardy.
If he is called up, he will reunite with former Sheffield United teammate Maguire – who is now captaining Manchester United. The centre-back responded to Calvert-Lewin’s Tweet, congratulating the striker despite him being linked with Old Trafford.
Well deserved mate 👏🔥
