BOSS Scott Parker refused to be drawn on whether Cherries would look to recruit a goalkeeper during the January transfer window.

The Daily Echo understands Newcastle United keeper Freddie Woodman had agreed terms on a loan deal to Cherries in the summer – and was even set to go on the club’s pre-season training camp to Spain.

But that move was scuppered after Martin Dubravka picked up a foot injury and Karl Darlow tested positive for coronavirus.

Since then, Ireland international Mark Travers has taken the spot of Cherries’ first choice stopper and played all but one game in the Championship this season.

Asked whether the club was still interested in signing a keeper in January, Parker said: “I think like anything in January, when January comes, we have to see where we are.

"And I'm not going to sit here and speculate, I realise how quick and how things change rapidly.

“If situations change, then we need to be ready to act on wherever that is.

“So this isn't just about a keeper. We could say this in just about every position in the team.

“God forbid, if something happens, injuries, whatever that may be, someone wants to go, then we're going to need to be reactive to that.

"So Travs, like you say, has done brilliant. His last two performances have been superb as well."

Travers is currently facing competition from Norway international Orjan Nyland for a starting spot at Cherries.
