Chelsea sign former Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli

Wed 28 July 2021 | 18:35

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of former Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli on a free transfer.

The 29-year-old was a free agent following the expiration of his deal with

Fulham

at the end of last season and has signed a two-year deal with the reigning European Champions.

On the move,

Bettinelli

said:

"It's always been a special club. I know the area very well so it's been a dream of mine to come over to this side and it's finally happened.

"There were some talks a few years ago when I was a bit younger and for whatever reason that didn't come about but I'm here now.

"I'm really excited to be involved and looking forward to trying to impress and help the team as much as I can."

Chelsea

needed to fill the position after

Willy Caballero

parted ways with the club at the end of the 2020-21 season so they decided to sign Bettinelli as a back-up to

Edouard Mendy

and

Kepa Arrizabalaga

.

Bettinelli has made 120 appearances for Fulham plus another 115 games on loan elsewhere during his career.
