New Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford says he feels the Blues are really going places both on and off the pitch.
Pickford became the most expensive English goalkeeper when he signed from Sunderland earlier this summer and says that it’s great to join a club that are on the up.
He said, “This feels like a club that is going places. We’ve spent a lot of money (on new players) but it’s not just that, it’s also the investment in the new training facilities and the plans for the new stadium.
“It’s only going to go in one direction and that’s up. The Club is showing massive ambition and that’s one of the reasons I came to the Club.
“We can go as far as we want to. We’ve got the team and we’ve got the depth as well, which is massive, especially in the Europa League, but also week in, week out in the Premier League.
“It’s great to be in the same team as Wayne. The career he has had is fantastic and to hopefully be pulling on the same shirt as him is unbelievable.
“I remember his first league goal (for Everton) against Arsenal. That went massive on the TV and that was when he burst onto the scene.
“You’ve got to look up to him, like you look up to so many other people when you are wanting to become a footballer.
“But it’s not just Wayne. The manager has brought in a lot of good players this summer, and there were a lot of good players already at the Club, so it’s an exciting time to be here.”
