Real Betis sign Spain Under-21 goalkeeper Dani Martin

Real Betis have completed the signing of Sporting Gijon goalkeeper and Spain Under-21 international Dani, the club have confirmed.

The promising goalkeeper has penned a five-year contract at the club with the fee reported at an initial €5m with a further €1m in add-ons.

Martin will add competition for the number one spot at the club alongside Joel Robles, after Pau Lopez joined Roma last week in a deal worth in the region of €30m.

The 21-year-old has made just four senior appearances in the Segunda for Sporting but has been capped by Spain from Under-17 level through to the Under-21 side.

Betis have already signed Real Sociedad striker Juanmi and Villarreal left wing-back Alfonso Pedraza this summer, while they are also keen to land Espanyol striker Borja Iglesias.

It is noted by the report that any additional incomings this summer would be dependant on sales – such as Lyon captain Nabil Fekir, should Giovani Lo Celso – who is wanted by Tottenham – exit the Seville-based club this summer.
