Paul closes in on new stopper

Paul Jewell says he is closing in on adding another goalkeeper to the squad.

Trialist Marian Kello played the second-half of Blues' 1-1 draw against Helmond Sport tonight as the pre-season campaign got underway.

The former Hearts 'keeper shared the 90 minutes between the sticks with Arran Lee-Barrett but after the 1-1 draw, the Town boss said: "We are getting close with another 'keeper.

"It's well known we have been chasing a new 'keeper for a while and we are getting there now.

"I'm confident but I know how these things go. Hopefully we can tie the deal up though very soon."

Marian will spend the week with the Club in Holland, with Paul adding: "He's an experienced 'keeper. He didn't have a lot to do tonight but he looked competent.

"I think he has had one or two offers from Turkey but we will see how things go."
