On Thursday, the Blues completed the signing of former England international Robert Green, who will provide back-up to Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero.

The 38-year-old, who has represented the likes of Norwich City, West Ham United and Queens Park Rangers and has plenty of English top-flight experience, joins the club from Huddersfield Town.

Green has since admitted that the past 24 hours has been a rollercoaster ride for him, but is delighted to have been given the opportunity to join the Blues.

"It has been a whirlwind 24 hours. 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," the goalkeeper told Chelsea's official website.

"It has been a pretty dramatic time for me, and I cannot wait to get started. I am absolutely delighted, and it is a thrill and an honour to be here."
