Asmir Begovic leaves Chelsea, joins Premier League club

Asmir Begovic

The Bosnian goalkeeper has left Chelsea after failing to win a place at the London club.

Asmir Begovic became the second player to leave Chelsea on Tuesday as he penned a “long-term” deal with fellow Premier League outfit Bournemouth.

The experienced goalkeeper followed Dominic Solanke out of Stamford Bridge, the young striker moving north to sign for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

During his two seasons at Chelsea Begovic made 33 appearances across all competitions, keeping 10 clean sheets, and claimed a Premier League title winners’ medal as Antonio Conte’s side were crowned champions.

With Thibaut Courtois the clear number one for the Blues, Begovic has opted to move to the Vitality Stadium to get regular first-team football.
