The Sun have revealed that Sean Dyche wants Everton to tie down Tottenham target Jordan Pickford to a new contract at Goodison Park.

Multiple outlets have revealed over recent months that Tottenham are expected to sign a successor to Hugo Lloris in the summer, with Pickford thought to rank high on the North London club’s wishlist (Daily Mail).

It was The Sun who revealed last month that Everton’s talks with Pickford over a new deal had reached a deadlock as the Toffees were not willing to offer the goalkeeper the salary rise that he was demanding.

The report also revealed that Spurs and Manchester United were circling and both clubs were willing to double the England number one’s current £100,000 per week salary.

The same publication has now offered an update on Pickford’s contract situation, explaining that Dyche wants the club’s hierarchy to prioritise tying down the goalkeeper.

The new Everton boss has allegedly told the Merseysiders to offer the 28-year-old the pay rise that he is demanding to remain at the club.

However, the report adds that Everton will have to secure their place in the Premier League before a contract can be formalised.

Spurs Web Opinion

I do expect Everton to stay up now that Dyche has been appointed. So, there is a decent chance that Pickford will put pen to paper on a new deal.

Even if the England number one does not sign a new contract at Goodison Park, I am not optimistic about our chances of winning the race for his signature, given that we might fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
