David Moyes has suggested Jordan Pickford could be worth as much as £30 million, with the Sunderland manager rejecting "derisory" valuations of the highly rated goalkeeper.

The 23-year-old has been linked with a raft of clubs, including Liverpool and Everton, although Arsene Wenger ruled out a bid to bring him to Arsenal.

Pickford was called up to the senior England squad for the first time in October and Moyes indicated Sunderland will be looking for a substantial fee for their prize asset.
