Everton boss David Moyes has invited American under twenty goalkeeper Zac MacMath to train with the club. The eighteen year old has been asked to come to Merseyside after impressing for the U.S at the Milk Cup. Moyes hopes he will be able to bring the youngster in full time once he is eligible for a European passport.
The young keeper put in two excellent performances in the Milk Cup, keeping clean sheets against China and Northern Ireland. And while being only eighteen years old, the Florida lad looks to be a real prospect for American goalkeeping.
Moyes will be hoping he can bring MacMath in so that fellow American keeper Tim Howard can take him under his wing, eventually to be replaced by him. Iain Turner looks unlikely to ever make it to the number one spot, having been at Everton for seven years and making just four league appearances. He’s been on loan at seven different clubs since he joined the toffees.
New boy Jan Mucha isn’t much younger than Howard and will be approaching the end of his career when the American retires, so he looks set to be glued to the bench.
Time will tell if MacMath is a good enough prospect to sign for Everton, but it will all depend on his passport situation anyway.
Everton have also been linked with MacMath’s Milk Cup winning teammate Omar Salgado. The seventeen year old striker is of Mexican descent and is currently unattached. He is being tracked by Vancouver Whitecaps and Portland Timbers.
