Everton fans react on Twitter to Bryan Oviedo’s new contract

The Costa Rican has signed a new three-year deal at the club.

Everton fans have reacted positively on Twitter to Bryan Oviedo signing a new contract at the club.

The defender signed a new three-year deal with the Blues on Friday, with him now set to extend his stat at Goodison Park until June 2019 after joining from FC Copenhagen in 2012.

He has become a firm favourite with the Blues faithful, after returning strongly from a broken leg sustained in the cup two years ago.

And those fans have reacted positively on Twitter to the news of his deal at the club.

It will now be interesting to see who will be the full time back up to Leighton Baines in the Blues squad between Oviedo and youngster Luke Garbutt.

Oviedo has battled back well from his long-term injury while Garbutt impressed last season when he was given the chance in the first team when Baines was out injured.

That is not likely to be a problem in the eyes of manager Roberto Martinez though, who will be glad to have such a wealth of options available to him.
