Date published: 05 July 2019

Oldham Athletic’s quest for another goalkeeper appears to have come to an end with the signing of Gregor Zabret from Championship side Swansea City.

The 23-year old moves on a season-long loan deal.

He’s been with Swansea City since 2013 and was part of the club’s under-23’s who won the League and Cup double in 2017.

During the last campaign he made a further 16 appearances for the side but is yet to make a full senior appearance at the Welsh former Premier League club.

Zabret does have international experience as well, having played 25 times as part of the Slovenian youth international setup.

He is also a product of NK Domzale’s academy where he made 14 appearances for their senior side before moving over the Swansea City.
