Everton sign Eldin Jakupovic as short-term keeper cover

13/09/2022 13comments  |  Jump to last

Everton have signed 37-year-old goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic as short-term cover while Jordan Pickford is out injured. 

Jakupovic most recently played for Leicester City, where he was behind Kasper Schmeichel and Danny Ward in the pecking order.

The 37-year-old Swiss National only ever played four times for Leicester after joining them from Hull City in 2017. All of those appearances came in his debut season with the Foxes. 

His contract with Everton runs until the end of the year and he will wear squad number 35 which was last worn by Dennis Adeniran who was released in May 2021.

I hear that he's Eldin high regard, Pat.

Should've been Foster.

Also, he's a lot better than Begovic, in my opinion.

If he was worse than, Danny Ward, I assume he's a Subbuteo goalie...

Duncan, at 37 I'm not sure he's a keeper.

So how long is Lonergan out for? Couldn't a junior keeper have taken a seat on the bench until maybe getting Virginia back in the next window?

Hoping Pickford will have recovered sometime in the next month.

Far too young. What's Espen Bardsen doing right now?

Dave Beasant next. I really wish we'd we kept Virginia, at least he's under 50.

Pointless signing. He's never going to help with our ineptitude in front of goal.

I see Tim Howard every week on NBC. Looks fit.

Well, at least he is cover.

And cheapish, no doubt as there is better out there, methinks.
