Goalkeeper 'agrees' terms with Wrexham as they wait on Ben Foster decision
| Last updated
Wrexham have reportedly already agreed a deal for a goalkeeper whilst they wait to find out if Ben Foster will stay on for the first season back in League Two.
Instead the former Watford goalkeeper took the gloves back off the peg to play in goal for National League Wrexham to help them get back into the Football League.
The 40-year-old was integral in their success in winning the league especially when he saved a last minute penalty against rivals Notts County.
The ex England international was extremely emotional as promotion was secured against Boreham Wood, claiming that the club he'd previously on loan at felt like 'home.'
Wrexham co-owner Ryan Reynolds tried to get Foster to agree to sign a new deal whilst the celebrations were ongoing. The Hollywood star even claimed he'd signed a 'verbal contract.'
However, as of yet there isn't actually an agreement in place for the veteran keeper to stay on at the Racecourse Ground for the 2023/24 campaign.
According to Australian outlet SEN, it seems that the Red Dragons have made a move to cover their backs incase Foster doesn't sign a new deal.
The report claims they have already signed a pre-contract agreement with Melbourne City goalkeeper Tom Glover, whose contract expires next month.
Glover, the perfect name for a goalkeeper quite frankly, was actually part of the Tottenham Hotspur academy from 2014 until 2019.
He never made a senior appearance for the Premier League side but did at least appear on numerous occasions for the under 18s and 21s, including in an FA Youth Cup semi-final.
The Australian played on loan back in his home country at Central Coast Mariners and for Swedish side Helsingborg, whilst in north London.
He then moved to Melbourne City, the team owned by Manchester City's owners, in 2019 and has helped them win three A-League Premiership titles.
So far Wrexham have released 11 players from their squad last season as they look to keep to the stricter FPL rules in the Football League.
