The 35-year-old is now tied to the Toffees until 2020 and believes his vast experience will benefit current no.1 Jordan Pickford.

Pickford was between the sticks for England in their march to the World Cup semi-finals, while Stekelenburg played in the final in 2010 with the Netherlands.

“Jordan had a very good 2017/18 season and played superbly as well for England at the World Cup,” the Dutchman told evertonfc.com.

“I understand my role and I will try to compete with Jordan and push him to continue to get better as well,” he continued.

“For me, it was tough last year because I had an injury and it took me a few months to come back from that.

“But I’m fit now, I’ve played in our pre-season games and I’m very much looking forward to Jordan getting back here so we can push one another.”
