Crystal Palace sign Spanish keeper

Crystal Palace have announced the signing of Spanish goalkeeper Vicente Guaita from Getafe on a three-year contract.

The 31-year-old will join on a free transfer on July 1 after his contract with the LaLiga club expires.

Palace chairman Steve Parish said on the club’s official website: “We are delighted to sign one of LaLiga’s best goalkeepers and pleased that we beat off the competition for his signature.

“We very much look forward to Vicente joining in pre-season training and helping us push on in the Premier League.”

Guaita began his career at Valencia and made more than 100 appearances for the club either side of a loan spell with Recreativo, where he played 30 times.

He joined Getafe in July 2014 and kept 12 clean sheets last season to help his side finish eighth in their first campaign back in the top flight.
