The Times have revealed that rumoured Tottenham target Jordan Pickford has decided to remain at Everton but the Toffees might be under pressure to sell some of their assets to balance the books.
Even though Pickford signed a new four-year deal at Goodison Park back in March, the goalkeeper has continued to be linked with a move to Tottenham, with reports over recent weeks backing the Lilywhites to pounce for the goalkeeper if Everton went down (GiveMeSport).
The Times have revealed that on the back of that victory, Pickford has decided that he will remain at the Merseyside club next season.
However, the report goes on to explain that Everton have posted losses of a whopping £417.3m over the last four years and it is unclear whether they might have to sell some of their assets to offset those losses.
The publication points out that the Toffees were in a similar position last season, which is why they had to sell Richarlison to Tottenham for £60m to balance their books.

Everton would likely have to sell some players before Sean Dyche is able to make moves for his transfer targets this summer but it appears quite unlikely that Pickford would be put on the market, given that the goalkeeper is one of the leaders of the dressing room and arguably the face of the club.
