Pickford set for Everton switch

Jordan Pickford

Everton are set to break the British transfer record for goalkeepers after agreeing on a £30m deal with Sunderland for goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

According to BBC Football; the initial £22m transfer fee will have £8m of potential add-ons on a lucrative five-year contract.

The England youth international is currently one of the most sought after English talents in the top-flight despite getting relegated with the Black Cats last season.

His meteoric rise was well documented as he initially started as back-up to Vito Mannone under David Moyes mentorship, but went on to secure the number one spot with inspiring displays behind an unconvincing defence.

Ronald Koeman's was said to be interested in Manchester City's Joe Hart, but the possibility to secure 23-year-old ahead of other Premier League rivals saw the Toffees act swiftly in the market.
