Man Utd continue to cast eye over Sunderland keeper Pickford

Manchester United scouts have been in France running the rule over Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

According to multiple reports, the Red Devils have watched the 22-year-old closely during the England U21 side's successful Toulon Tournament.

Pickford helped Gareth Southgate's Young Lions win the tournament with a 2-1 victory over hosts France in the final on Sunday and his performances have reportedly impressed United scouts.

The Black Cats academy graduate made his first-team debut in the FA Cup against Arsenal in January while also making two starts in the Premier League for Sam Allardyce.

United are believed to be keen on Pickford, while Tottenham are also interested, but Sunderland are unlikely to sell the talented gloveman anytime soon.
