England Keeper Pickford Signs New Everton Deal
Everton have announced that Jordan Pickford has signed a new six year deal with the club, and he is now aiming to be an Everton legend during his time with them. This means that Pickford's prime years will all be with Everton, assuming he stays for the full length of his deal, and it is great business from their point of view to get a key player in a key position tied up to such a long deal.
This deal also adds a great amount of stability for England too, as it is expected that Pickford will be the England goalkeeper during those six years. They hope he will develop into a vital player for them, and know that his football will be played at the same club, without disruption. It will also be played in England, so they won't have any problems keeping up to date with how his progress is going.
Everton have put together a solid looking squad over the past couple of seasons and Pickford was brought in as part of that. He was signed from Sunderland for £25 million initially, a fee which has clauses that make it rise to £30 million. The money they spent on him, they will want him at the club for a long time and with this new deal it looks as if they have got their wish.
With the good news about Pickford signing a new deal, Everton fans should be heading to Goodison Park this weekend in a good mood. They will also be looking for three points from their game against Fulham, a team who have struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League so far. Everton are priced up as the favourites at 20/27, while Fulham are 10/3 to take all three points home with them, and the draw is priced at 14/5.
