Everton have signed goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann on a short-term deal for absolutely nothing.

The 39-year-old was released by Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer and will join the Toffees until January.

The America international will provide both back up and competition to compatriot Tim Howard and Jan Mucha.

“It is difficult when you only have two senior goalkeepers – it only needs one of them to go down and then you are in trouble,” Everton manager David Moyes said.

“Marcus is friends with Tim. It is after the transfer window has closed and we had to look for someone who we knew.

“I would have liked to have got somebody before the window closed if we could, but there were other priorities at the time.

“It gives me someone who can help in the reserves and if we get an injury to a goalkeeper, he has got good experience of the Premier League and we can use him as back-up.”

Hahnemann arrives at Everton following a two-year spell at Molineux and he previously played in the Premier League with Reading.

Meanwhile, Toffees youngster Jose Baxter has joined League One side Tranmere on-loan for a month.
