Pickford Happy With New Deal At Sunderland
Young keeper Jordan Pickford is a happy man after signing a new four year deal with Sunderland.
Pickford is still only 20 years old but is being tipped to be a big name in the game in the future.
Although the youngster has made it as far as the bench for the first team, he has not yet made a senior appearance for the Black Cats except for a pre-season friendly, but he has stepped up to league football with loan spells at Burton Albion and Carlisle United.
And reports from both clubs have been very encouraging.
Pickford, who is a Sunderland fan, told the club's official website of his delight in getting the new contract: "I have always loved the club and all I have ever wanted to do my whole life is play for Sunderland.
"I`m really happy to get the contract done. Hopefully I can come back flying in pre-season."
