Sean Dyche reveals Jordan Pickford's new contract with Everton

Helping his side to run away from the relegation zone by keeping two clean sheets in victories over Arsenal and Leeds United, Dyche confirms the England international will sign a new contract with Everton.

Sean Dyche confirmed England's number one will commit his future to the relegation-threatened Everton, insisting the contract doesn't contain a relegation release clause despite the club's position in the Premier League table.

"I'm not really bothered about release clauses, that's nothing to do with me,"

he said.

"It's more to do with the fact he's a very, very good player, we know that. A good servant to this club so far as well and going to continue to be that I'm sure.

"I think it's a sign he's enjoying our new regime – if you like – I think he's accepted what we're looking to offer and I know he's been a fantastic player, so I want him to continue doing that.

"Any way we can rub off on him and help him to continue his development will be great if he feels there is more, and I think there is."

Working with


's rival for the Three Lions' number one spot, Nick Pope, Dyche hopes the 28-year-old goalkeeper's experience helps his fellow Everton teammates.

"And [I worked with] Tom Heaton, who played for England,"

Dyche added. "

A good list of goalkeepers there – different characters, different types of 'keeper.

"I'm learning about Jordan, he's been very open about himself, how he sees himself here, signed a new deal, quite obviously – or looking to.

"It's just about working with those players, continuing their development. It's a strange word to use with older players as he's done a lot in his career, but there's different ways you can rub off on people.

"I look to do it myself, I've asked every player regardless of age – Seamus [Coleman], I've been speaking to him. You can learn in different ways."
