Crawley swoop in loan deal for rookie West Ham keeper

League One Crawley have signed young keeper Raphael Spiegel on a month's loan from West Ham. The 21-year-old, a Switzerland Under-21 international, has linked up with Town initially until August 16.

Manager John Gregory told Crawley's website: "We have had excellent reports about Raphael. He is six-foot-five-inches and a commanding presence in the penalty area and a good shot-stopper.

"He's learning his trade at West Ham and this is an opportunity for him to gain more experience and for us to have a look at him, initially for the next month."
