Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford signs new contract until 2027

England and Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has signed a new contract with the English club.


 announced on Friday that

Jordan Pickford

has signed a new contract until 2027.

Pickford joined Everton from Sunderland for £30 million in 2017. The 28-year-old has made 222 appearances for the Toffees. He has been England's number-one goalkeeper since the 2018 World Cup and has reached 50 caps for his country.

Pickford told Everton's club media:

"It's massive to sign this new contract at such a special club for me.

"The support I've had from everyone at the club since I joined as a 22-year-old has been so important to my family and me.

"I'm happy here and so are my family. We love it at Everton.”

Pickford won Everton's Player of the Season last season after also winning the prize in 2018.

"Everton is a massive club,"

Pickford added.

"The past few seasons have not been what we wanted.

"But we now have a manager who I believe will point us in the right direction and get us up the table. It's definitely my aim to be successful at this club.”

Everton manager Sean Dyche also believes Pickford can continue to improve at the club.

"He's a very, very good player, a good servant to this football club so far and he's going to continue to be that for sure,"

Dyche said.

"I think it's a sign that he's enjoying our new regime and he's accepting of what we're looking to offer. He's been a fantastic player, so we want that to continue.

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

Everton is in 16th place in the

Premier League

this season. They have won two of their first three matches under new manager Sean Dyche and will face Aston Villa at Goodison Park on Saturday.
