Goalkeeper Signs New Contract

Jordan Pickford has committed his future to the club until 2018.

Sunderland's highly rated young goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has signed a new four-year deal that will keep him at the Stadium of Light until 2018.

The 20-year-old, who has yet to make his senior debut for the club, spent last season impressing whilst on loan at Burton Albion and Carlisle United, making 12 appearances in League Two and 18 in League One respectively.

Speaking to safc.com and via his personal Twitter account, Pickford said;

Last season was massive for me. I played games at Burton and at Carlisle, which was great experience.

I want to keep developing and working hard and I'm delighted to sign a contract with the club I have always supported.

Pickford will now be hoping to kick on and start challenging Vito Mannone as Sunderland's number one, although as Gos Poyet is rumoured to be looking to sign a new experienced goalkeeper, with Julian Speroni and Costel Pantilimon recently linked, the England youth international may find himself out on loan again before he gets a chance to make his competitive debut for Sunderland.
