Jordan Pickford became Everton’s Club-record signing after sealing a switch from Sunderland in June 2017.

The highly-rated goalkeeper was the first acquisition of the 2017 summer transfer window, signing a five-year contract after the Blues agreed a fee with Sunderland for an initial £25million, which could rise to £30million depending on team and individual performances.

The move saw Pickford become the most expensive British goalkeeper ever, with Juventus’ Gianluigi Buffon and Manchester City’s Ederson the only two custodians purchased for higher transfer fees in the history of the game.

Born in Washington, Tyne and Wear, Pickford joined boyhood club Sunderland aged eight and progressed through the ranks to sign for the Black Cats on an initial two-year scholarship in 2010.

A renowned shot-stopper with excellent distribution, he subsequently enjoyed loan spells with no less than six different clubs - Darlington, Alfreton Town, Burton Albion, Carlisle United, Bradford City and Preston North End - before making his senior debut for Sunderland in an FA Cup tie against Arsenal in January 2016.

Pickford, who has represented England at every level from Under-16s to Under-21s and received his first call-up to the senior squad in October 2016, was shortlisted for PFA Young Player of the Year in 2016/17, despite Sunderland’s relegation from the Premier League.

Pickford was shortlisted for PFA Young Player of the Year in 2016/17, despite Sunderland’s relegation from the Premier League. 

The 2017/18 campaign proved a strong one for the young custodian as he played every minute in all 38 Premier League fixtures for the Blues. His impressive displays saw him walk away with the Young Player, Players’ Player and Player of the Season accolades at the Dixies, the Club's end of season awards.

Pickford, who has represented England at all levels from Under-16s, made his senior bow in a 0-0 draw against world champions Germany in November 2017 before keeping a second clean sheet in a 1-0 away win against Holland in his second appearance between the sticks for the Three Lions.

He was one of the stars of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, producing a string of eye-catching saves and proving the hero in a last 16 penalty shootout success over Colombia as England reached the semi-finals of the competition for the first time since 1990.

Pickford's form for both Club and country saw him commit his future to Everton in September 2018 by penning a new six-year contract until the end of June 2024.

Contracted until: June 2026
