DONE DEAL? Everton agree terms with Sunderland for goalkeeper Jordan Pickford

Everton have agreed terms with Sunderland for goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

PA Sports says the Black Cats have accepted an offer from the Merseyside club which could rise to £30million with various add-ons included in the package.

Pickford was one of the few bright spots as Sunderland were relegated last term and he is currently in Poland with England Under-21s.

Last year he brought in fellow Dutchman Maarten Stekelenburg but neither he nor Joel Robles could nail down a regular spot between the posts as they made 19 Premier League starts each.

Born in the north-east, Pickford came through Sunderland's academy system and had a series of loan deals with the likes of Preston, Bradford, and Carlisle prior to becoming his boyhood club's number one last term.

Should the terms of each of the add-ons be met, Pickford would become Everton's record signing, eclipsing the £28million they shelled out for Romelu Lukaku in 2014.
