9AM: Medical done, Deal done as SKY confirms Chelsea has agree two-year deal to sign player

Sky Sports have confirmed Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli on a free transfer following his release by Fulham.

The 29 year old goalkeeper reportedly had his Chelsea medical on Tuesday ahead of signing a two-year deal with Chelsea.

Bettinelli will provide cover for Edouard Mendy and Kepa Arrizabalaga at Stamford Bridge and replaces Willy Caballero, who was released this summer.

Bettinelli spent the 2020/21 campaign on loan at Middlesbrough, making 42 appearances as they finished 10th in the Championship.

The 29 year old goalkeeper is set to become Chelsea’s first signing of the summer.
