Sunderland manager David Moyes admits that goalkeeper Jordan Pickford could be sold in the summer, should any club table a £30m fee for his services.



The 23-year-old, who made his debut in January last year, has been the standout performer for the Black Cats this season, and his performances in the recent loss to Arsenal showcased his immense potential between the sticks.

Pickford made a total of 11 saves versus Arsene Wenger's side, and despite this, the Wearside club succumbed to a 2-0 loss at the hands of the north London giants.

In a report on The Mirror, Moyes insisted that the Black Cats would be willing to cash in on their main asset as any significant fee would help in improving the overall shape of the squad.

When asked on whether a £30m fee would encourage Pickford's sale, Moyes simply replied with a 'Yes'.

Apart from Pickford, Jermain Defoe could also be on his way out with the club having attached a relegation release clause to his previous deal.
