Everton sign Jordan Pickford from Sunderland for club-record fee

Shaka Hislop feels Jordan Pickford has done enough to warrant a potential starting job at Everton.

Everton have completed the signing of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in a club-record deal.

Pickford, 23, joins from Sunderland on a five-year contract for a £25 million fee that could rise to £30m.

"It's great to sign for the club," Pickford told Everton's official website. "Last season was my first in the Premier League so to get this opportunity with Everton now, to be able to go forward with my career and show everyone what I can do with Everton is unbelievable.

"It's a great club, a massive club and I think it's a great opportunity and the right time for me to come to Everton and show what I can do.

"This is an exciting time for the club and for me, too, with the ambition being shown. I just want to be the best I can be to help.

"I know Mason [Holgate -- his England under-21 teammate] and a few of the other lads at Everton from younger age groups and the club's only going forward, so it's the best thing I can be doing.

"I remember playing [at Everton] on my first game back from injury last season for Sunderland. When I came out for the second half the fans gave me a clap and applauded then so I can't wait to get out there on the pitch at Goodison.

"I've just got to show people what I can do, keep training and working hard and when it comes to game day, produce what I can do - making match-winning saves, showing what my distribution is like and making the right saves at the right times."

Jordan Pickford was Sunderland No.1 as they were relegated from the Premier League last season.

Pickford, who is part of the England under-21 squad for the European Championship in Poland, will become a significant player for Everton, manager Ronald Koeman said.

"I'm really pleased we've made what I'm sure will be a significant signing for Everton Football Club," Koeman said. "Jordan is a very talented young professional who also has a real hunger for success, and that's important for us as we now look to make further progress in the seasons ahead.

"We've seen the quality he has through his performances in the Premier League last season and, given his young age, we're sure he will get even better. I'm looking forward to welcoming Jordan to the group next month and wish him every success with the England Under-21 squad in Poland."
