Eldin Jakupovic 35

Everton signed veteran goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic as short-term cover while Jordan Pickford and Andy Lonergan were both out injured in September 2022, initially drafting the then-37-year-old in as cover until the end of the 2022-23 season.

Jakupovic had most recently played for Leicester City, where he was behind Kasper Schmeichel and Danny Ward in the pecking order, having joined the Foxes from Hull City.

He played four times for Leicester, with all of those appearances coming in his debut season. Prior to that he had had spells in Greece and Russia having started his career in Switzerland with Grasshoppers.

The need for Jakupovic's services had passed by early 2023, however, with all three of the club's other keepers back fit so the decision was taken to release him early to allow him to sign for Major League Soccer outfit, Los Angeles FC in January.
