Spurs target Pickford: I thrive off Everton culture

Jordan Pickford insists he's enjoying his football at Everton.

The England goalkeeper is being linked with Tottenham today.

But he told the club's website: "For me, Everton is the People's Club and there's huge passion that comes with that. That's what I thrive off - seeing the fans having a good time.

"It's what makes me hate losing so much as well, because, obviously we're losing as individuals and as a team but we're also losing for them.

"When I'm out on the pitch and I'm shouting, it is just passion. It's not negative vibes - it's about being positive and trying to help my teammates, to give them that motivation and be determined.

"If I didn't have that passion and desire to win, then what's the point in playing football? I'm not going to be sat there like laid-back Luke - I've got to have that emotion, controlled emotion, desire and maturity on the pitch."
