Everton fullback Holgate delighted with Pickford swoop: Great signing

Everton fullback Mason Holgate is excited by the club's early transfer business.

The defender said he was particularly impressed that the Blues moved quickly to sign his England u-21 teammate Jordan Pickford.

“I think it's a great signing," he told the Liverpool Echo.

“As far as keepers go, from my experience, I don't think they get much better than Jordan. He's still young so he's going to be here for a long time.

“Everyone has seen what ability he has - he's an unbelievable keeper. His kicking and distribution is probably the best I have seen. It's a really strong signing for us going forward.

“It says a lot because he is a keeper who was in demand, pretty much any Premier League team would take him. It's good to see that the Club has got the ambition to go out and get these types of players."
