Derby County are set to complete the signing of Slovakian goalkeeper Henrich Ravas. Ravas has been playing for National League North side Boston United on a non-contract basis, and manager Dennis Greene has told the Boston Standard that he will be joining the Championship promotion-chasers.
The 18-year-old also had a similar contract with League One side Peterborough United earlier this season but failed to appear in the first-team. He had been training with Posh, but was playing at Boston, who are only a part-time club. Nevertheless, the youngster clearly has plenty of potential and Paul Clement is prepared to hand him a contract to form part of his squad. It is however quite likely he would be involved in the Under-21 side.
Greene suggests that his new contract with Derby began yesterday and the keeper informed him that he is moving on,
“He’s signed a contract with them (Derby County) for two-and-a-half years.
His contract will be put in place on January 4.
They could have put it in place sooner but they’ve kindly not put it in so he could play for us over the Christmas period.”
It looks set to be a very busy January for Derby County and although this isn’t likely to be one of the high-profile deals that Clement is chasing, down the years it could turn out to be a very shrewd move indeed.
