    Goalkeeper

Karlo Ziger is a Croatian goalkeeper who joined our Academy in July 2017.

A strong keeper and good shot-stopper, he is always hard to beat and has a fantastic work ethic and attitude to continually develop his game. He made 12 appearances during his maiden season in the Under-18s, making his FA Youth Cup debut - and a clean sheet - in our semi-final second leg win over Birmingham City.

The Zagreb-born teenager signed a first professional contract at the club in July 2018, a three-year deal that expires in the summer of 2021. While playing most of his football for the youth team in 2018/19, the teenager made headlines for his penalty heroics against his countrymen Dinamo Zagreb in the UEFA Youth League quarter-finals. In the second half of the season, he joined Sutton United in the National League on an emergency loan deal to provide keeper cover.
