England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford signs new six-year deal at Everton
England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has signed a new contract at Everton until 2024.
Pickford, 24, was named the club's player, players' player and young player of the season in 2017-18, having joined for around £30 million from Sunderland in the summer of 2017, and became the youngest goalkeeper ever to represent England at a World Cup when he helped his country to the semifinals in Russia.
"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," he told EvertonTV. "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.
"Hopefully, I can continue to progress, become a better goalkeeper each and every day and keep that England No. 1 shirt as well. That's another aim.
"This is a great club for me and, hopefully, we can get the success for the fans to earn the right to be a legend at Everton one day, each and every one of us."
