    GOALKEEPER JOINS UNITED FROM FC SLOVACKO

    Matej Kovar has joined Manchester United from FC Slovacko, subject to international clearance.

    The 17-year-old is a talented young goalkeeper who has already appeared for Czech Republic’s Under-18s on two occasions, highlighting his promising pedigree and excellent potential.

    An exciting prospect, Kovar has signed a professional contract with the club and will soon join the ranks of the Academy, specifically with Kieran McKenna's impressive Under-18s team

    Stands at 185cm so is relatively tall already.

    Has played twice for Czech Republic youth last November against Netherlands and Ireland.

    Not a lot about him on the FC Slovacko website.

    Interesting to see what happens with Fojticek, Carney, Thompson now.

    We have so many keepers on our books. De Gea, Romero, S.Johnstone, Castro-Pereira, O'Hara, Henderson, Richardson, M.Johnstone, Moutha-Sebtaoui, Fojticek, Thompson, Carney and now this lad. That's 13! Surely something has to give!

    Hmm... maybe Fojticek won't be retained.

    How's Carney getting on? I remember when the youth intake was announced on here one of the posters said he was highly rated but really small, has he grown any?

    Henderson and Johnstone would be gone I'm guessing.

    I would imagine both Johnstones and Richardson leaving, but two of those three have not been at the club all that long. Henderson is one of the more promising keepers IMO, though not sure about his contract situ.

    Henderson's contract is ending this summer. On Johnstone's contract we've an option to extend.

    Btw, I'm really liking the fact that we're treating the signings or announcement of professional deals as big deals on OS now. One or two years ago, there was nothing on OS.

    I am sure United would not have let Henderson leave on loan unless the contract would be sorted or an option in place.

    I'd say Max Johnstone, Richardson and Moutha-Sebtaoui would probably be more likely to be leaving

    He's only played with the u16s and u17 friendlies so far, looks to have grown a bit but is still only on a part time contract so will be interesting to see what happens with him this summer. I wouldn't be surprised to see the us bring in another keeper for next year's u18s since the current u16s keeper hasn't been retained.

    Cant say I ever heard of him but good to see a Czech on our books after a long time, probably second ever since Poborsky? We are probably hoping that one of the 60 young goalkeepers we have come good after David leaves.
