Everton have announced a record five-year kit deal with sportswear manufacturer Umbro.

The British firm will take over as the club's kit supplier from American brand Nike this summer, marking the restoration of a long-standing partnership that came to an end in 2009.

The arrangement, which officially begins on June 1, will also see Umbro take over as sponsors of some of the club's grassroots initiatives.

Everton chief executive Robert Elstone said: "The club is delighted to be entering into this new and exciting partnership and looks forward to working alongside the Umbro team over the next five years.

"Umbro has an unrivalled football heritage and is committed to maintaining its reputation for design excellence and innovation.
