Henrich Ravas has signed for Championship title-chasers Derby County.
The Slovakian stopper was on the bench for the Pilgrims as they beat Lowestoft Town 4-1 today, rested due to a wrist injury.
However, he will link up with the Rams from Monday.
“He’s signed a contract with them for two-and-a-half years,” explained manager Dennis Greene.
“His contract will be put in place on January 4.
“They could have put it in place sooner but they’ve kindly not put it in so he could play for us over the Christmas period.”
Ravas has been on non-contract terms with both Boston United and Peterborough United this season, playing for the Pilgrims yet training with the Posh during the week.
Despite having the options of calling upon keepers Jason Alexander, who played today, and Sam Vince, Greene accepts he may well need to look elsewhere for another number one to challenge for a place between the sticks.
He added: “We need to look at another goalkeeper.
“I’m just going to enjoy three points today and make some phone calls. That’s all I can do.”
Meanwhile, 16-year-old forward Harry Limb has joined Loughborough Dynamo on loan.
Greene hopes that regular football can see the promising young talent gain vital experience to help his challenge for a place in the Pilgrims first team next season.
