Everton and Rafa Benitez have announced veteran goalkeeper Andy Lonergan has signed for them until the end of the season. 

This decision was taken after Harry Tyrer suffered a quadriceps injury. Their other reserve goalkeeper, Joao Virginia is expected to head out on loan soon.

37-year old Lonergan will play third fiddle to Everton's first-team goalkeepers Jordan Pickford and Asmir Begovic. He joins them after short stints at Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion.
