England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford’s future with Everton is in doubt, with the club yet to sign the new five-year contract he agreed ahead of the World Cup.

News of the delay alarmed clubs such as Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea. No reason was given for the deal not to be completed by the Goodison Park hierarchy, although the player was happy to oblige.

This has led Premier League rivals to believe a deal could be struck for Pickford, who has 18 months to run on his current terms.

The delay in renewing Jordan Pickford’s contract has sparked interest from the Premier League’s leading clubs

Toffees boss Frank Lampard has said he wants the 28-year-old to sign a new package as soon as possible. However, we understand that lag occurs at the boardroom level and not at the player level. Sources expressed their surprise that the contract remained with the club’s owners, as it was expected that a quick solution would be reached before Pickford left for Qatar.

Pickford joined Everton in 2017 for a fee of £30m from Sunderland. Since then, he has made 214 appearances for the Toffees and cemented his status as England’s No. 1 keeper.

Lampard, whose position is under threat after four consecutive defeats, said last week: “Jordan is very happy to be in this club, and I don’t want to speak for him, but that’s the impression I make of him.

I feel we can match his ambitions. We are a huge club with a huge history and a lot of ambition and it’s a big part of that. If Jordan feels that, we can match each other’s ambitions and in terms of making him stay longer, I don’t see that as an issue.

While the possibility is that Pickford’s contract will be given the go-ahead, it hasn’t stopped other First Division clubs from asking to keep up.

Tottenham are looking for a long-term successor to Hugo Lloris, 36, while Chelsea have struggled to find a reliable stopper in recent seasons. Meanwhile, Man United have long been scouring the market looking for a replacement for David De Gea and Cheshire’s base in Pickford is one tick box.

United will be looking to raise transfer money by selling goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest.
