GOALKEEPER Asmir Begovic’s switch to Everton from Cherries has been completed.

The Bosnian stopper has joined Rafael Benitez’s Toffees on a 12-month deal, with an option for a further year.

Everton did have Robin Olsen on loan from Roma last season but with his deal expiring, the Blues have been after a new keeper.

Begovic, 34, joined Cherries from Chelsea for £10million in the summer of 2017 and had been the club’s number one keeper for the majority of his first two Premier League seasons at the club.

He was then sent out on loan to Qarabag and Milan for the 2019-20 campaign, before returning to reclaim a first-team spot under Jason Tindall last season.

Begovic kept his place under previous head coach Jonathan Woodgate for the business end of last campaign, helping Cherries to a sixth-placed Championship finish.

He also won the Daily Echo-Micky Cave player of the year award last season and was named in the Championship team of the season.
