West London giants Chelsea have confirmed that goalkeeper Jamal Blackman has joined Dutch Eredivisie outfit Vitesse Arnhem.

His transfer to Vitesse Arnhem was officially announced by Chelsea on Tuesday via a club statement.

Jamal Blackman started the season as the third choice goalkeeper at Chelsea behind second choice shot stopper Willy Caballero and first choice goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The 25-year-old will spend the rest of this season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem.

Jamal Blackman previously had loan spells at English Championship clubs like Sheffield United and Leeds United.

A serious leg injury ended his season in the last campaign and he was restricted to just two appearances for Leeds United before he sustained a broken leg in November 2018.

In the previous season, Jamal Blackman kept nine clean sheets in 33 games for Sheffield United who are now in the Premier League.

The Blades were in the lower leagues when Jamal Blackman left Chelsea to join them on loan.

He also had loan spells with Ostersunds FC of Sweden and Wycombe Wanderers.

Jamal Blackman didn’t feature in the four games played by Chelsea in the Premier League.

The third choice Chelsea goalkeeper was also missing for the UEFA Super Cup loss to Liverpool.
