Everton’s Jordan Pickford signs new six-year contract

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has committed his long-term future to the club after signing a new six-year contract that promises to keep him at Goodison Park until 2024.

The Merseyside outfit signed Pickford from Sunderland for the 2017-18 campaign, and the shot-stopper has gone on to establish himself for the Toffees and England.

The 24-year-old England’s No.1 stopper was heavily linked with a move away from Everton having helped the national side to the World Cup semi-finals, but he has opted to remain with the club for the next six year.

He told the club’s official website: “When I made the move last year I thought Everton would be a great club to come to and the right step in my career.

“Getting the opportunity to become England’s No. 1 was down to being at Everton, I believe, and being able to put in solid performances week in and week out.

“Coming to Everton, a massive club with a massive history and seeing how passionate and determined the fans are, it’s inspired me to perform week in and week out and it’s moved my career on, without question. I want to play as many games as I can for the club, that’s my goal now.”

Pickford has made 52 appearances for Everton in all competitions.
