TRANSFER NEWS: Marcus Bettinelli joins Chelsea

Goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli has today joined Chelsea Football Club.

Bettinelli arrives having been out of contract at Fulham, and he will add strength to our goalkeeping resources following the departure of Willy Caballero.

The 6ft 4in keeper spent over a decade at Craven Cottage, making 120 appearances for the Whites, and also represented the England Under-21 team earlier in his career.

On signing a two-year contract at Stamford Bridge, 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.’

Bettinelli started his career at Fulham at the age of 14 and progressed through the ranks before making his club debut at the start of the 2014/15 season following their relegation to the Championship.
