Cape Town – Former Everton manager David Moyes has urged Jordan Pickford to remain with the Toffees after his superb Soccer World Cup campaign amid rumours of a potential move to Bayern Munich.
Pickford starred in goal as England finished fourth at the World Cup in Russia, drawing even more attention to the 24-year-old than already was on him due to links with the Bundesliga giants.
However, Sky Germany have claimed that contrary to reports, Pickford is not actually on Bayern's radar, and Moyes feels it is too soon for the former Sunderland goalkeeper to consider a move from the club he joined in 2017 in any case.
"I think Everton is the right club for Jordan," Moyes told The Sun.
"It's a big club, he's only just moved and I would say to him it would be stupid to even consider another move if there was to be an option for him.
"I think it will help him being at Everton because he will get enough work and he's got a chance to develop without every single thing he does being scrutinised.
"He is still young and he just needs to keep getting his games in. The last thing he needs to bother about is any speculation."
Moyes, who spent 11 years at Goodison Park prior to his move to Manchester United in 2013, later managed Pickford at Sunderland during the 2016/17 season, but both parted ways with the club following their relegation from the Premier League.
