Johnson: I won’t quit Everton

He told the club’s official website: “If I could sign here for the rest of my career I would do it tomorrow.

“I am more than happy here, I love the club, the fans and the lads in the dressing room. I am sure the fans can see how much I love it here in my football but I want to make it clear there is no truth in this report – I am loving being an Everton player and I regard it as a great honour to put that blue shirt on every week.

“I would love to think I will still be here in seven years.”
