News Man City strengthen goalkeeping department with Moreno signing

Premier League champions Manchester City have made their second signing ahead of next season.

City have completed the signing of goalkeeper Stefan Ortega Moreno on a three-year deal.

The 29-year-old has joined the Club on a free transfer after his contract at Arminia Bielefeld expired, City says.

Moreno told City website he could not pass up an opportunity to sign for City.

“This is a fantastic move for me,” he said. “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.”

  The experienced German bolsters City’s goalkeeping options and will compete for the number one jersey with Ederson, Zack Steffen and Scot Carson.

Moreno becomes the second signing of the summer, following Erling Haaland to the Club.

The move is subject to international clearance ahead of him joining up with the squad this month ahead of preseason.  

Ortega started all but one of Arminia Bielefeld’s Bundesliga matches last term.

In total, he made 220 appearances across two different spells at a team he joined as a youngster in 2007. He made his first-team debut four years later, helping them win promotion to 2. Bundesliga in 2013. 

He joined TSV 1860 Munich in 2014, making 64 appearances in three years there, before re-signing for Arminia Bielefeld in 2017 and eventually becoming vice captain.
