Sean Dyche made his debut in the opening game with a comeback against leaders Arsenal last week. First, the Toffees are preparing for another big battle when they visit Liverpool on Monday.
The Sun have previously revealed that the Toffees are at a dead end over talks over a new contract with Pickford. Which expires in 2024, as the player wants his wages to double from his current £100,000 offer per week.
A source told Sky Sports: “Jordan wants to stay at Everton, he loves it here and has settled down. But the club was not willing to pay the wages he demanded. UFABET
“Players and agents asked Bill Kenwright and the board to meet half way. But the club were willing to pay only a few thousand pounds from the original contract.
“The big problem they have is the fact that relegation is bothering them. It means they can’t budget for a huge wage increase if they have to stay in the Championship for another 12 months.
“Despite the risk of relegation, Jordan is willing to commit his future to the club for now.”
