CHELSEA hopes of signing Borussia Dortmund’s Roman Burki have been quashed after the keeper signed a new deal.
Boss Frank Lampard is in the market for a new No1 to replace out-of-favour Kepa Arrizabalaga.
SunSport exclusively revealed how Burki was a target for the Blues as they plotted a £15million raid on the 29-year-old Switzerland international.

Chelsea were hoping for a cut-price deal for the stopper with just a year left on his deal.
But they will have to look elsewhere with Dortmund confirming that their No1 has put pen-to-paper on a two-year contract extension.
Despite missing out on Burki, Lampard’s plans to sign a new keeper will cast serious doubts over Arrizabalaga’s long-term future.
The former Athletic Bilbao man became the most expensive keeper in world football when he sealed his £71.6m switch two years ago.
Arrizabalaga, 25, was axed in February for five games following a series of blunders.
