Palace confirm Guaita signing

Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Vicente Guaita following the expiration of his contract at Getafe.

The 31-year-old becomes Palace’s first signing of the summer and joins on a three-year deal despite reported late interest from Fiorentina.

The Spaniard made over 100 appearances for Valencia before joining Los Azulones in 2014, keeping 12 clean sheets last season as the side finished eighth in their first season back in La Liga.

Getafe have moved to replace the goalkeeper by signing Joel Robles from Everton on a free transfer.

“We are delighted to sign one of La Liga's best goalkeepers and pleased that we beat off the competition for his signature,” Palace chairman Steve Parish told the Crystal Palace club website.

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