Southern League side Weymouth believe that they are about to sign Yeovil Town goalkeeper Matt Cafer. The Dorset side have recently lost main goalkeeper Simon Evans for the season and so have a gap in their side that manager Brendon King is anxious to fill.
Speaking to the Dorset Echo, King has said that he hopes to tie up the paperwork for Cafer in time for their Tuesday night home match against AFC Totton and expects to sign him on a non-contract basis:
"We are bringing a young keeper on board called Matt Cafer, who is a local lad that has been at Yeovil for a while. We are signing him on non-contract forms and subject to all the paperwork being sorted in time he should hopefully be in the squad for the Totton game."
Cafer is currently at Yeovil Town on a half-season deal, but has been on loan at Western League Premier Division side Willand Rovers. He did not feature in any of the club's pre-season friendlies, and with new arrival Chris Dunn coming in from Coventry City and Wayne Hennessey on loan from Wolves whilst Marek Stech recovers from a broken hand, the Glovers have plenty of choices in that area, particularly given that goalkeeping coach Gareth Stewart is registered as a player.
Update 15/09/2013: Matt Cafer has indicated that he understands this to be a loan deal, rather than a permanent transfer, despite King's description of it being a signing on non-contract terms. His ultimate registration should therefore remain at Huish Park.
