Derby County have just announced the signing of 18-year-old Slovakian youth international goalkeeper Henrich Ravas, ostensibly from Vanarama National North side Boston United.
Youngster Ravas, who was dual registered with both the Pilgrims and Sky Bet League 1 side Peterborough United on non-contract terms, joins the Rams after impressing over the duration of the first half of the season in a series of performances that drew glances from admirers, leading to the young Slovakian’s signature today at the iPro.
Ravas, who stands at an impressive 6ft 4in tall, and is an international for Slovakia in the Under-19 age group, has signed on a two-and-a-half year deal at Derby and, after featuring for the Rams in training, will immediately link up with the Derby Under-21 team.
The upshot of Navas’ arrival at the iPro is that Devlin Mackay has returned to Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock; Mackay was acting as understudy in the Derby Under-21s side to Jonathan Mitchell after joining the Rams on a half-season loan back in September.
Derby currently sit second in the Championship table, trailing leaders Middlesbrough by four points.
