Jonas Lössl 49

Everton made goalkeeper Jonas Lössl their first signing of the 2019 close season transfer window when they picked him up as a free agent as back-up to Jordan Pickford in May 2019, with his contract officially starting on 1 July.

The then 30-year-old, whose contract expired at Huddersfield that June, was an established Danish international who began his career at FC Midtjylland in his home country before moving to France with Guingamp and then Germany with Mainz.

He was initially loaned to Huddersfield for the 2017-18 campaign but then joined the Terriers on a one-year deal and made 69 appearances in all at the John Smith Stadium. 

Everton dispensed with three of their junior keepers in 2019: Hewelt, Renshaw and Hilton, with Joao Virginia, who was thought to be Pickford's understudy, going out on loan at Reading, leaving Lössl to compete with Stekelenburg for the reserve keeper spot on the Everton first-team squad.

Under a remarkably lucrative deal, Lössl will earn 100M Swedish Krona over the course of his 3-year contract at Everton, according to reports. That's a total of £8.2M over the course of the contract, or £52,880-a-week. Ekstra Bladet claimed Lössl was on £28,000 a week at Huddersfield Town, where he played two seasons in the Premier League.

But Jonas Lössl would not play a single game for the senior team in his short spell with Everton, falling out of favour even on the subs bench when Duncan Ferguson took charge briefly as caretaker manager after Marco Silva was sacked. That was before the goalkeeper would return to Huddersfield Town for the rest of the season after reaching a loan agreement with his former club in January 2020, after Liverpool loanee Kamil Grabara was injured against Hull City.

It was reported that the 31-year-old Dane had agreed a significant pay reduction to return to the John Smith Stadium on loan. He would play 7 games in the Championship before the Covid-19 pandemic caused premature shutdown of the competition in March 2020, but would carry on his new mission of helping to save Huddersfield Town from  relegation after the Championship resumed, extending his loan agreement until the end of July 2020.

"Jonas has been exceptional, he just brings a wealth of experience, a calmness and has a real presence as a human being, not just on the pitch but also off the pitch," said manager David Cowley. "He is a really intelligent guy, he is always sharing his opinion, and that opinion is always really good to listen to.

"It's been an absolute pleasure to have him with us and I know a big part of wanting to bring him here is that he has Huddersfield Town in his heart. To me, that was what January was about – making sure we had enough people who had Huddersfield Town in their hearts – because enthusiasm is infectious, and so is love.

"It is an infectious commodity to really deeply care and want to be part of something and he has those qualities. He has brought an awful lot to our group, we have absolutely loved having him with us and, on top of that, he is a bloody good goalkeeper. So he has been a real bonus for us."

Going into a new season, Jonas Lössl's status at Everton was uncertian, with Joao Virginia on the bench for the opening game, and then getting his senior debut in the Carabao Cup tie against Salford City. Lössl had played the second half of Everton's first pre-season game at Blackpool but was not in the squad for either of the early games.
