That's according to Pool boss Simon Grayson, who revealed the Seasiders had taken a look at the Leicester City shot stopper before eventually bringing in Jak Alnwick.

The 22-year-old Dane was in fine form on Saturday, thwarting the Seasiders on a number of occasions and playing a starring role in his side's 2-1 win.

“He’s a keeper we spoke about during the summer and we spoke to Leicester before we signed Jak," Grayson told The Gazette.

“He’s got a good reputation and he made some good saves.

“He did a good job and he was probably their best player in the end.”

Iversen has won a number of plaudits for his displays for the Millers so far this season, having made 11 appearances in all competitions.

The goalkeeper has represented Denmark from Under-16 to Under-21 level and is highly thought of at the New York Stadium.
