Everton boss Ancelotti set to trigger James contract renewal option

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen on extending the stay on James Rodriguez.

Ancelotti has hinted that could persuade Everton's owners to exercise a clause in James Rodriguez's contract which gives them an option to extend the deal with him for a further year.

The Colombia international scored a stunning goal to give his side a valuable point against high-flying Leicester, with a fierce shot on his weaker side that had his manager joking: “Unbelievable…I'm not used to seeing James score with his right foot!"

James has a two-year deal, but with an option for a third and Ancelotti said: “It is not my job to extend the contract with the player, I only give the advice to the club to extend the contract, and I can give the advice to the player to extend with us - that's it, that's all I can do."

“Really, James we didn't talk about a contract in this moment - we are more than happy he is here and he is happy to be here. So we are happy he is happy; there is no problem to sign the contract."
