Jordan Pickford contract: Everton and England goalkeeper agrees new deal

England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has agreed a new deal with Everton.

The 28-year-old was approaching the last 12 months of his contract at Goodison Park and had been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

Pickford joined Everton from Sunderland for £30m in 2017 and has made 222 appearances for the Merseyside club.

"He is a very good player. It is a sign he is enjoying the new regime and has accepted what we are looking to offer," said new manager Sean Dyche.

"He has been a fantastic player so we want him to continue doing that.

"I'm learning about Jordan. He has been very open about himself and how he feels here."

The Toffees have won two of their three games since Dyche replaced Frank Lampard and sit 16th in the table, a point above the relegation places, before Saturday's home game with mid-table Aston Villa (15:00 GMT).

Pickford made his England debut in 2017 and has 50 caps, helping the Three Lions reach the final of Euro 2020
