Merseyside club, Everton have announced the signing of Huddersfield goalie, Jonas Lossl on a pre-contract agreement.
Lossl who was signed as a backup to first-choice goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford will officially move to Goodison Park on free transfer from Huddersfield Town on July 1 after signing a three-year contract with the Merseyside club.
The Dane has spent the last two years with Huddersfield who were condemned to Champions league football several weeks before the end of the season recording 31 league appearances and 15 clean sheets for the club in that time.
Lossl initially joined the Yorkshire club on loan from Bundesliga side Mainz 05 having started his career at FC Midtjylland.
He started his career with the Danish club FC Midtjylland and also spent two seasons in the ligue 1 with Guingamp.
Everton’s current second-choice goalkeeper is 36-year-old Dutchman Maarten Stekelenburg, who has one year left on his existing deal. Stekelenburg moved to join the Toffees from Fulham during the reign of Ronald Koeman.
With the 19-year-old João Virginia also impressing at academy level since his arrival from Arsenal, Marco Silva is seeking to improve the competition amongst his goalkeepers
With Pickford established as the main man between the sticks for both club and country, Lossl can anticipate being an understudy in Marco Silva’s squad.
Everton failed to top Wolves on the log standings in seventh-place, a position that would have catapulted them into the Europa league second qualifying round with Manchester City having trashed Watford by a 6-0 scoreline.
Lossl might just be one of so many other interests, Silva has his eyes on with the club striving to establish for themselves a place in European football.
