Speaking at the England Under 21’s training base, where he is playing alongside Pickford in the Under 21 European Championships, Holgate said that Pickford is an “unbelievable keeper.”
“I think it’s a great signing,” said Holgate.
“As far as keepers go, from my experience, I don’t think they get much better than Jordan. He’s still young so he’s going to be here for a long time.
“Everyone has seen what ability he has – he’s an unbelievable keeper. His kicking and distribution is probably the best I have seen. It’s a really strong signing for us going forward.
“It says a lot because he is a keeper who was in demand, pretty much any Premier League team would take him. It’s good to see that the Club has got the ambition to go out and get these types of players.”
