Jordan Pickford's position at Everton will be threatened by Olsen's permanent contract.
Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that the club intends to extend the contract of goalkeeper Robin Olsen, who joined Everton on loan from Roma.
The Swedish goalkeeper went on loan toEverton
on the final day of the summer transfer window for a season and competed with Jordan Pickford for the Toffees' goal ever since. He played three games for Everton, two of which were in the Premier League - the defeat against Newcastle and the victory overLeicester
- and in the Carabao Cup against United, followed by the loss of Everton.
His first game for Everton ended Pickford for 120 consecutive games, and now Ancelotti has announced that his contract will be made permanent.
The Italian manager told reporters:
“Yes, I think we are pleased to have him [Olsen] here.
“He is a goalkeeper with experience, so I think we are going to talk with him and his agent to find a solution for him to be here permanently. It can be for January or in June.
“The games that he played he did well. He was comfortable, he was calm, he was quiet. I think he gives good support to Jordan also.”
Olsen is a regular in the Swedish national team and has 42 caps.
