​DONE DEAL: Sunderland keeper Pickford completes Everton switch

Everton have completed the signing of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford from Sunderland.

The 23-year old becomes Britain's most expensive goalkeeper after the two clubs agreed a fee of £25m, which could rise to as much as £30m depending on individual and team performances.

Pickford attracted strong interest from a host of English clubs after a stellar debut season at Sunderland.

Speaking to the club's website, Pickford expressed his excitement on moving to Goodison Park.

He said: "It's great to sign for the club.

"Last season was my first in the Premier League so to get this opportunity with Everton now, to be able to go forward with my career and show everyone what I can do with Everton is unbelievable.

"It's a great club, a massive club and I think it's a great opportunity and the right time for me to come to Everton and show what I can do.

"This is an exciting time for the club and for me, too, with the ambition being shown. I just want to be the best I can be to help."
