Everton ready to sell Pickford and replace him with...

Everton are ready to sell Jordan Pickford after his latest off-field incident.

The Sun says Burnley's deposed England goalkeeper Nick Pope is on the radar as his replacement.

Pickford, 25, landed in hot water last week after he allegedly gave a black eye to a bouncer during a brawl in Sunderland.

He is facing disciplinary action at the Toffees — though boss Marco Silva and recruitment chief Marcel Brands are more concerned about his behaviour between the sticks.

And it is that which may tempt them to sell Pickford, who arrived from home-town club Sunderland for £30m two summers ago.

Burnley are understood to want £10m for Pope, who won one cap before dislocating his shoulder last July.
