Everton has signed Jordan Pickford from Sunderland for a club-record fee that could rise to 30 million pounds ($38.3 million), making him third most expensive goalkeeper of all time.

Everton announced the signing of the 23-year-old Pickford on Thursday on a five-year deal, following Sunderland’s relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season.

Pickford has only had one full season at senior level, having represented England at every level from Under-16s to Under-21s. He received his first call-up to England’s senior squad in October.

Among goalkeepers, only Juventus star Gianluigi Buffon and Ederson who recently joined Manchester City from Benfica  have cost more.
