Everton fans on Twitter are urging their club not to give Phil Jagielka a new contract.

The veteran centre-back, who turns 37 in August, has reminded Everton of his importance in recent weeks.

Jagielka scored the winner in the Toffees' 1-0 victory over Arsenal last Sunday but, with his contract expiring in June, his future at Goodison Park is the subject of debate.

The former England international said at the weekend that he is yet to hear anything about getting a new deal on Merseyside [The Echo].

 

But some Everton fans on Twitter don't want him to stay beyond this season.

He might've stolen the show against Arsenal, but Jagielka wasn't as impressive in Saturday's 2-0 defeat by relegated Fulham at Craven Cottage.

It is on days like that which might convince the Toffees' hierarchy that he isn't worth keeping around for next season, but time will tell what they decide.

Jagielka, who joined Everton in 2007, has only managed five Premier League games this season.
