Pickford signs new four-and-a-half-year Everton contract

Jordan Pickford has signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract at Everton, with the goalkeeper committing his future to the club until the end of June 2027.

The 28-year-old, who was due to enter the last 12 months of his existing deal this summer, had been linked with a move to Tottenham, but has agreed to stay at Goodison Park despite the Toffees sitting 16th in the Premier League, just one point above the relegation zone.

Pickford, a £30m signing from Sunderland in 2017, has made 222 appearances for Everton and has established himself as England's first-choice goalkeeper having won 50 caps for his country.

Pickford told evertontv: "It's massive to sign this new contract at such a special club for me. The support I've had from everyone at the club since I joined as a 22-year-old has been so important to my family and me. I'm happy here and so are my family. We love it at Everton.

"Everton is a massive club. The past few seasons have not been what we wanted but we now have a manager who I believe will point us in the right direction and get us up the table.
