Goalkeeper Nathan Trott joins FCK

F.C. Copenhagen have signed Nathan Trott as a new goalkeeper from the upcoming season until the summer of 2028. Trott transfers to FCK from Premier League side West Ham United.

The 25-year-old has been on the books at West Ham for several years but spent the last two seasons on loan at Vejle Boldklub. Here, he has proven to be one of the best goalkeepers in the Danish Superliga.

"We are pleased to have finalised an agreement with a talented goalkeeper," says FCK Sporting Director Peter Christiansen.

"The case with Trott is reminiscent in many ways of the ones previously seen with Jesse Joronen and most recently Kamil Grabara, who moved from England to a Danish Superliga club and performed strongly there before taking the next step to FCK."

In addition to his loan period at Vejle, Trott has previously been on loan at Wimbledon and French club Nancy, while also playing international youth matches for England. Now it’s time for the Englishman to experience life in Copenhagen.

"I am both proud and happy that F.C. Copenhagen wanted me on the team," says Trott. "This is a fantastic club that has proven themselves both in Denmark and internationally for many years. At the same time, I feel a great hunger to become champions again and take the club far in Europe.

"During my time in Denmark, I have experienced firsthand what it's like to play in front of the fanbase the club has both at Parken and away, and it is really impressive. I am very much looking forward to experiencing that, and I will do everything I can to ensure that the fans, the club, and the team succeed together."

For head coach Jacob Neestrup, the arrival of Trott is an important element ahead of the new season.

"It is good that we have settled this early, so Nathan can be part of our entire pre-season with the team," says Neestrup. "He is extremely strong in his reactions on the line against close-range shots and has good qualities in his play.

"Additionally, we have received top references on him from England and Denmark, which has given us a healthy impression of him as a person and a competitive sportsman. Now we look forward to getting him out on the training pitch tomorrow with the team."

Everyone at F.C. Copenhagen would like to welcome Nathan to the club and the city.
