The Preston shot-stopper, who is currently on loan from Sunderland, could soon be a serious contender for an England place. With the likes of Tom Heaton and Robert Green still being occasionally called up, there could be a goalkeeping place up for grabs, particularly in the build-up to Euro 2016.

The 21-year-old already has 38 youth caps to his name and has represented England at all six levels below the senior side. Pickford is this season’s first choice at Deepdale with two clean sheets and two man of the match performances to his name.

He could also be a serious challenger next season for the number one shirt at The Stadium of Light.
