Watford have been allowed to take Maccabi Tel Aviv’s teenage goalkeeper Haviv Ohayon on trial according to the Watford Observer.

The 17-year-old will train with the Hornets for three days where he will join up with first team keepers Heurelho Gomes, Rene Gilmartin and Giedrius Arlauskis.

Maccabi Tel Aviv’s sports director, Jordi Cruyff, said of the young goalkeeper:

Haviv Ohayon is a promising young keeper and such an experience should be very important for his development.

The young goalkeeper has represented his country at under-17 level, after first playing in three qualifying matches for the 2015 under-17 Championships.

He then played in three further matches in the elite round of that competition, which took place in March last year.

The ‘keeper conceded just two goals in those six matches, an impressive record which shows why the Hornets have offered a trial to the player.

Ohayon could be a future replacement for current number one Heurelho Gomes, who turns 35 next month, though this depends on the success of his trial.
