West Ham goalkeeper Adrian is likely to seek a summer exit when his contract expires in the summer.

The Spaniard is a popular figure at West Ham but he has been relegated to second-choice this season. With Lukasz Fabianski in top form, Adrian is unlikely to wrestle back his starting spot.

When his contract expires, the 32-year-old is surely set for an exit. A return to Spain is the most likely next career move for Adrian, who will leave West Ham with fond memories.

But that means West Ham will need a new goalkeeper in the summer. Fabianski will retain the number one jersey but he needs a deputy stopper.

Could Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Jonas Lossl be the ideal candidate to replace Adrian and deputise for Fabianski?

It has been a dismal season for Huddersfield but Lossl can hold his head high. The Denmark international could be in contention for Huddersfield Player of the Year accolade.

Lossl is a competent shot-stopper and he has a good command of his box. Standing at 6ft 5in, the 30-year-old is able to cope with the physical demands of the goalkeeper role.

At the end of this season, like Adrian, Lossl is out of contract. West Ham could get their like-for-like replacement for Adrian on a free transfer if they sign Lossl.

As a first-choice, there are better options out there. But for a cheap back-up option, Lossl’s experience would make him a good signing for West Ham.
