Port Vale Football Club are delighted to announce that Goalkeeper Jayson Leutwiler will join the club on July 1st, subject to FA and EFL Approval.
The 34-year-old shot-stopper joins us from Oldham Athletic where he has been since June 2021.
Leutwiler came through the ranks of Swiss Super League side, FC Basel, featuring for their Under-18 and Under-21 sides before a move to England in 2012 to join Middlesborough.
However, it was his time at Shrewsbury Town where he made a name for himself in English football, featuring in every game for the Shropshire outfit in their promotion from League Two whilst also breaking the club record for the number of clean sheets in a single league season (23).
In 2017 he made a move to Blackburn Rovers for an undisclosed fee working alongside Spanish international and now current Brentford number one, David Raya.
The 6'4 keeper has also had spells with Fleetwood Town, Huddersfield Town and most recently Oldham Athletic.
Manager Andy Crosby said:
“Jayson is an experienced player that adds strong competition to our new goalkeeping department, his attitude off the pitch is fantastic and we will be using his knowledge and personality to enhance our group.”
Talking about Jayson, Director of Football, David Flitcroft said:
“Jayson brings good experience to the club. It’s important with every signing we make that they are the right people for our club and with the references that we have, we know Jayson is the right character.
“We want drivers of standards and performance and that is one of Jayson biggest attributes.
“His talent and attitude will strengthen our goalkeeping department which has been one of the club’s main objectives going into this window.”
