League One side Yeovil Town have finalised a three-month loan deal with Portsmouth for Bosnian-born Canadian goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

The 21-year-old, who had a two-game spell with Yeovil earlier this year, follows Canadian international keeper Josh Wagenaar to Huish Park.

Boss Russell Slade told BBC Somerset: "They'll be good for each other, they know each other and have pedigree.

"It'll be good competition, they'll push each other to the limit."

Wagenaar signed a one-year contract on Wednesday after a successful trial spell.

"We have two remarkably good keepers which is the first time since I've been at Yeovil that we've been able to do that," said Slade.

"Asmir will still share some of his time at Portsmouth in terms of the training on a Monday, so it'll be good to have Josh here."
