Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has confirmed his desire to stay at Goodison Park this summer.
Speaking with The Athletic, the 29-year-old was asked if he will be at Everton next season, and replied: “Definitely. I’ve just signed a new contract and I’m happy and my family are happy so now we just want to move forward as a club.”

Speaking via the official Everton website back in February, Pickford said: “This contract will take me to more than 10 years at Everton and I want to build a legacy here to put myself up there with the likes of Neville Southall to be one of the best keepers to have played for Everton.”
The 29-year-old is undoubtedly one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League and his performances for Everton have kept the Toffees in the top-flight over the past two seasons.
Indeed, his penalty save back in May in the 2-2 draw with Leicester City was ultimately the difference between Everton staying in the top division, and the Foxes going down.
Pickford reaffirming his desire to remain at the club will be music to Evertonian ears.
