Big Money Paid For A Reason

Big Money Paid For A Reason

Jordan Pickford secured a clean sheet on his competitive debut for Everton in the Europa League victory in Slovakia against MFK Ruzomberok last week.

The former Sunderland goalkeeper cost the Blues a then club record transfer fee, which was of course matched by the potential fee Burnley could get for Michael Keane, but Ronald Koeman feels Pickford is worth every penny.

Admittedly, Pickford didn't have too much to do last Thursday but the England keeper showed some impressive form in the final pre-season friendly against Sevilla on Sunday, which saw the shot-stopper make a number of impressive saves in the two all draw with the La Liga side.

Koeman's comfortable with the fee Everton paid and feels Pickford, 23, is already showing, in fact he had prior to his arrival at Goodison Park, obviously why the boss wanted him, he's worth the money he cost.

He also told the Official Website there's little doubt Pickford will be a 'great signing' for the Blues.

'We paid that money for a goalkeeper because we believe in the young boy. He is only 23, but he's really comfortable, a great kicker of the ball and I'm really happy to see him ready to play 90 minutes now in front of the fans.'

Adding: 'He did well last Thursday and he did well today. It's a great signing for the Club.'
