Everton have confirmed the signing of Jonas Lossl on a free transfer from Huddersfield Town. The goalkeeper will officially move to Goodison Park on July 1st and is set to serve as a worthy backup option for England international Jordan Pickford.
The 30-year-old spent the last two seasons with the Terriers at the end of which the club got relegated to the Championship. He made 31 appearances in the Premier League in 2018/19. Before signing for Huddersfield, he played for FC Midtjylland and Mainz 05. He moved to the John Smith Stadium initially on loan from the Bundesliga side, and the deal was made permanent last summer.
The arrival of Lossl to Merseyside will likely spell the end of the road for Everton’s current backup shot-stopper, 36-year-old Marten Stekelenburg, who still has 12 months remaining on his contract with the club. The experienced Dutchman came during the reign of his compatriot Ronald Koeman.
The contract Lossl has signed with Everton is set to keep him at Goodison until 2022.
