Ollie Webber signs for Pompey

Pompey have signed goalkeeper Ollie Webber from Crystal Palace on a permanent deal.

The 21-year-old – who was born in Portsmouth – has represented Northern Ireland at under-21 level.

Blues boss Danny Cowley said: “We’re delighted to bring Ollie into the group and he’s someone we were able to have a look at when he came in just before Christmas.

“He’s had a great education at Crystal Palace and as well as being a good shot-stopper, is comfortable with the ball at his feet and has excellent distribution skills.

"Ollie has come in and is a young keeper who wants to improve every single day. We like to recruit players who have a burning ambition to get better."

“Alex Bass has gone out on loan to Bradford because we’ve taken a long-term view and it’s so important that he plays in the second half of this season.

“Ollie has come in and is a young keeper who wants to improve every single day. We like to recruit players who have a burning ambition to get better.”

Webber joined the Eagles from Glentoran in the summer of 2016 following a successful trial and turned professional two years later.

He had a loan stint with National League side Dover last term, but featured just three times before the deal was cut short due to the Covid pandemic.
