Former Everton and West Ham United manager Moyes worked with Pickford at Sunderland during the 2016-17 campaign.
Following the Black Cats’ relegation to the Championship, the 24-year-old goalkeeper moved to Everton for an initial transfer fee of £25 million, as stated on the Toffees’ official website.
The goalkeeper had a great World Cup for England in Russia, and, according to The Sun, German and European giants Bayern Munich are interested in him.
Moyes, though, has suggested that Pickford should not leave Everton in the summer transfer window.
The former Manchester United manager told The Sun about Pickford: “I think Everton is the right club for Jordan.
“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.”
Leaving Everton for Bayern would be a massive step up for Pickford, but the England international goalkeeper will not get regular playing time due to the presence of Manuel Neuer at the German giants.
For Pickford to develop and progress in the coming years, he needs to play regular first-team football, which he is getting at Everton at the moment.
