We are delighted to announce the signing of Slovenian U21 international goalkeeper Žan-Luk Leban on a season long loan from Premier League side Everton.

Žan has appeared for us in pre-season against York City and impressed the management team with his ability and attitude in that game as well as the subsequent training sessions enough to make the club take up the option on him the the forthcoming season.

Chairman Paul Barthorpe commented on the arrival of Leban, saying: “We need strong competition across the entire squad for places in the first team. The fact we are looking at players of the highest standard and pedigree by exploring opportunities at Premier League teams shows how far we have come in terms of our ambition, and determination to progress. I know Pav has been working particularly hard to get this one over the line, and it’s a real signal of intent for our ambition.”

Welcome to Farsley, Žan!
