Everton star in talks over contract renewal ahead of summer uncertainty

29 June 2022 0 By Total Football News

Everton are in talks with Jordan Pickford over extending the contract of England’s no.1 this summer in order to tie him down to the club for the foreseeable future.

Pickford was a key reason that the Toffees survived this season, turning in a string of fine performances and a series of fine saves to ensure that the club had a chance heading into the final games of the season, including a save of the season contender against Chelsea in a game that they won 1-0.

His current deal at Goodison Park runs out in 2024, and there was speculation at the turn of the year that Tottenham were considering making a move for him as competition for Hugo Lloris.

However, as per the Telegraph, the player and Everton are locked in talks over potential renewing a deal for the 28-year-old, which would keep him at Everton for the prime of his goalkeeping career.

Regardless of the outcome, Pickford is expected to stay at Everton this summer as he looks to hold onto his no.1 spot in the England side for the upcoming Qatar World Cup amid competition from the likes of Nick Pope, Dean Henderson and Aaron Ramsdale.
