Everton forward Richarlison has extended his contract at Goodison Park until the summer of 2024.

The Brazilian, who joined from Watford in July 2018, scored his 20th Everton goal in 50 starts against Leicester on Sunday.

"I intend to be here a long time," Richarlison, 22, told evertontv.

"This was the club which gave me the opportunity to show my football.

"It was here I managed to get a place in the Brazil national team and it was here I have scored lots of goals in the Premier League."

Richarlison's extended deal will come as a boost to struggling Everton before the Merseyside derby with Premier League leaders Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday.

He was initially brought to England by Marco Silva, who signed him for Watford before swooping to make him his first Everton recruit after being appointed manager in summer 2018.

"He has my trust and the trust of the whole group," Richarlison said.

"It's us on the pitch and we are looking to help him as much as possible because Marco Silva is an excellent person.

"I need to continue focusing and being happy here and I think I have made the right decision in extending my contract.

"Now it is time to continue the focus and to make the fans happy."
