STEELERS’ veteran Ashley Tait is looking forward to having a young goalie in club colours next season.

Sheffield have yet to name their new top target for the position, but Tait, 35, says: “A goalie is our key signing. Both Ryan and I have looked at various options. We’re closing in on the guy we believe is right for us.

“Finner wants a younger, hungry guy and the goalie we’ve lined up fits the bill. The Continental Cup is a huge draw and the guy we’re after is excited by this. Scouts and managers watch you in those competitions and if you’re motivated to climb the European ladder it’s a great event to perform well.

“The fact that this guy has played in the Elite league before is good, he knows the league, the rinks and the standard. Hopefully we can dot some I’s and cross some T’s in the next couple of days.”
