Chelsea have officially announced the signing of English veteran goalkeeper Rob Green on a free transfer fee.
The 38-year-old, who signed a one-year deal at Stamford Bridge, has spent last season at Huddersfield Town but didn’t feature any game for The Terriers.
“It has been a whirlwind 24 hours,” Green told Chelsea’s official website.
“You are thinking about your career and where you want to go and then you get a phone call like this – and it is a short conversation.”
“It has been a pretty dramatic time for me and it is a thrill and an honour to be here.”
Green, who has 12 England caps, will provide back-up to Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero in this coming season.
“Chelsea Football Club has today completed the signing of goalkeeper Rob Green,” a statement on club’s official website.
“Green joins to provide backup for Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero after leaving Huddersfield Town, where he spent last season.”
Green becomes the second summer signing for Chelsea with new manager Maurizio Sarri already signed Italian midfielder Jorginho from Napoli.
