Man City sign keeper Ortega on free transfer from Arminia

Manchester City have signed goalkeeper Stefan Ortega from German side Arminia Bielefeld on a three-year deal, the Premier League club announced on Friday.

The 29-year-old German, who was out of contract at Arminia, played 33 out of 34 of their league games in the 2021-22 season, but was unable to help them avoid relegation.

“This is a fantastic move for me,” Ortega said. “Manchester City are an amazing team – a squad with world-class quality in every area.”

Ortega will be second choice to Ederson, with back-up goalkeeper Zack Steffen, who made a costly error in City’s FA Cup semi-final defeat to Liverpool in April, linked with a move away from the club.
