Chelsea have signed goalkeeper Marco Bettinelli on a free transfer.

The 29-year-old was available after leaving Fulham and has now signed a two-year deal with the Blues.

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."

Bettinelli will provide cover for Edouard Mendy and Kepa Arrizabalaga following the departure of Willy Caballero.
