Everton have this afternoon confirmed that Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lössl is set to join the club on a free transfer this summer.
30-year-old shot-stopper Lössl has spent the last 2 seasons plying his trade in the Premier League with Huddersfield.
The Danish international made the move to The John Smith’s Stadium on loan from Bundesliga outfit Mainz in the summer of 2017, quickly going on to establish himself as the Terriers’ no.1.
As such, Huddersfield did not hesitate in making Lössl’s arrival at the club permanent last summer, activating their option to buy for an undisclosed fee.
Lössl once again played an integral role for the Yorkshire outfit this past season, albeit amid a dismal campaign which eventually saw Huddersfield relegated back to the Championship with just 16 Premier League points to their name.
And Everton have today moved to take advantage of Jan Siewert’s side’s return to England’s 2nd-tier, by sealing a deal for Lössl.
As confirmed in an official statement across the club’s website and social media channels, the Midtjylland youth product will make the move to Goodison Park upon the expiration of his Huddersfield contract at the end of next month, having put pen-to-paper on a pre-contract agreement until 2022.
Lössl looks set to play backup to first-choice Toffees’ shot-stopper Jordan Pickford next season.
