Goalkeeper joins Derby on a two-and-a-half year deal.

Derby County have signed 21-year-old goalkeeper Kelle Roos from Skrill Premier side Nuneaton Town.

 

The Dutch shot-stopper has joined Derby on a two-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee after he impressed during a recent trial.

 

Prior to his trial at Derby, Roos spent a week training at Premier League Liverpool.

 

Viewed as ‘one for the future’, Roos will work alongside Eric Steele and Derby’s other goalkeepers on a daily basis to continue his development.

 

Steele said: “Derby County are delighted to welcome Kelle to the goalkeeping department.

 

“He is a young up and coming talent with potential and a good addition to the first team squad.”

 

Roos began his career in his native homeland at PSV Eindhoven and was a Dutch youth international.

 

It is understood injuries halted his progress and he also had spells with Dutch top-flight clubs Willem II Tilburg and NEC Nijmegen before moving to England in November.

 

Upon joining Nuneaton he kept three clean sheets in his first three league matches and helped Nuneaton to a win and a clean sheet in his final appearance for the Club on Saturday as they defeated Macclesfield Town 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium.
