Chelsea complete £14m deal for Serbia goalkeeper Petrovic

Chelsea have completed a £14m deal to sign goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic from MLS side New England Revolution.

The stopper has signed a seven-year deal with an option to extend for a further season.

Petrovic is Chelsea's second major goalkeeper signing this summer, after Robert Sanchez joined from Brighton in a £25m deal following Kepa Arrizabalaga's loan move to Real Madrid and Edouard Mendy's transfer to Al Ahli.

The 23-year-old has been a standout performer for New England Revolution, keeping seven clean sheets in 22 MLS games this term.

Petrovic said: "It's a big step for me and it's always been a dream of mine to sign for one of the biggest clubs in the world. Today I have achieved that goal and I'm so happy.

"Playing in the Premier League is something I'm really looking forward to doing and I hope to learn many things here at Chelsea. I can't wait to meet everyone and play at Stamford Bridge."
