Premier League side Manchester City have today announced the signing of Stefan Ortega on a free transfer.
The 29-year-old goalkeeper has signed a three-year contract until 2025 after his contract at Arminia Bielefeld expired. Manchester City fought off competition from Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke.
“This is a fantastic move for me,” Ortega told the club’s website. “Manchester City are an amazing team, a squad with world-class quality in every area. To be given the chance to join this group of players and help continue the club’s success is a dream for me.
“I have enjoyed my time in Germany and I want to thank Arminia Bielefeld for their support. But this new challenge of coming to City and playing in the Premier League is too good for me to ignore.”
“I can’t wait to get started, meet my teammates and begin working with Pep and his backroom staff.”
Ortega played 220 games for Arminia Bielefeld across 12 years.
