Keeper Bossu signs on with Crewe

French goalkeeper Bertrand Bossu has signed a two-month contract with Crewe Alexandra following a successful trial.

The 29-year-old former Aberdeen keeper is now awaiting international clearance before making his debut for the Alex.

"I've not played since May and I just want to get started. I'll give it my best," Bossu told BBC Radio Stoke.

Caretaker manager Dario Gradi added: "He's not played a lot of games, which concerns me, but that's why we've only offered him a two-month deal."

Gradi continued: "He's the biggest keeper I've seen in a long time and is very experienced."


Bossu has played for 11 clubs, including Barnet, Gillingham, Darlington and Walsall.

He made most of his senior appearances at non-league Hayes between 2001 and 2003 after joining from Barnet, where he began as a trainee.

Crewe have used four goalkeepers so far this season - David Button, Adam Legzdins, Steve Collis and Adam Bogdan.

Tottenham Hotspur keeper Button was recalled from his loan spell at the Alexandra Stadium on Tuesday.
