Maarten Stekelenburg has vowed to push Jordan Pickford for the Everton No 1 shirt after signing a new contract until June 2020.
Stekelenburg told evertontv “Jordan had a very good 2017-18 season and played superbly as well for England at the World Cup.
“I understand my role and I will try to compete with Jordan and push him to continue to get better as well.
“For me, it was tough last year because I had an injury and it took me a few months to come back from that.
“But I’m fit now, I’ve played in our pre-season games and I’m very much looking forward to Jordan getting back here so we can push one another.”
