Vanarama National League club Macclesfield Town have signed vastly experienced Iraq international goalkeeper Shwan Jalal.

Jalal, now 31, was released by Sky Bet League Two side Northampton Town having joined them in February on a contract until the end of the season.

After starting his career with Gillingham as a youngster, Jalal went on to play for Hastings United where his performances earned him a dream move to Tottenham Hotspur in August 2001.

But he never made the senior side at White Hart Lane and enjoyed a sixteen-game loan spell with Woking in 2002/013 and eventually signed for the Cards on a permanent basis in May 2004.

Again he attracted the League scouts and joined Peterborough United in January 2007.

Jalal made eight appearances for Peterborough and after a loan spell at Morecambe, spent six years with AFC Bournemouth, playing more than 150 games.

After a loan spell with Leyton Orient he spent the first half of this season with Bury, making eight appearances.

In total he has made more than 300 career appearances.
