Everton: 5 Keeper Candidates to Succeed Tim Howard at Goodison Park

American international goalkeeper Tim Howard has been a stalwart in the Everton goal since his move from Manchester United in 2006.

Howard is 33 years old and is contracted to Everton until 2016, so the time is coming when a successor needs to be in place.

While goalkeepers usually extend their careers beyond the normal playing days of outfield players, as a look at a list of the Premier League's oldest players will attest, Howard could continue for another seven years as the Everton number one.

Yet, with Everton's European ambition, as well as their domestic success, the club could be looking to secure the services of a future goalkeeping star in the mould of Joe Hart or David De Gea.

Howard could also use some immediate competition; to keep the American at his best, he needs a solid backup to push him to his highest level.

While goalkeeper is not an immediate need of the Toffees, a young goalkeeper could help solidify the future of Everton as they look to build on their strong recent Premier League finishes and move onto the European level once more.
