Lancaster City on verge of completing deal for goalkeeper Curtis Anderson

Lancaster City are closing in on the signature of former England youth World Cup winner Curtis Anderson.

The Dolly Blues have been keen to tie up a deal for the goalkeeper after he enjoyed an impressive spell at Giant Axe over the second half of last season.

The former Blackpool and Manchester City youth ace – who spent two years as a professional with Wycombe Wanderers – was part of the England Under-17s team which lifted the World Cup in 2017.

Still highly thought of within the professional game, it is understood Anderson had attracted interest from clubs at League One and Two level.

However, it is believed that Anderson is keen to continue the momentum he has built as City’s No.1 rather than become a back-up keeper at another club higher up the pyramid.

Anderson has been amongst the squad at pre-season training this week and looks set to sign a deal with the club this week.
