Rob Green Thrilled To Be A Chelsea Player

Rob Green has completed his free transfer to Chelsea and wasted no time in getting stuck in with his first training session.

The 38-year-old signed a short-term deal on Thursday morning and was training alongside his new team-mates at their Cobham HQ by the afternoon.

Willy Caballero welcomed him to the team as they posed for a photo before the experience Green was given a testing time by Chelsea’s outfield players.

Green becomes the second addition to the squad this summer, where he will provide competition as the third-choice goalkeeper.

He was released by Huddersfield at the end of last season and has signed a short-term contract at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea bid to boost their homegrown quota.

He told the club website: ‘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.

‘It has been a pretty dramatic time for me and I can’t wait to get started.

‘I am absolutely delighted and it is a thrill and an honour to be here.’

Green brings with him a wealth of experience, having played 658 games at Premier League and Championship level.

Willy Caballero is the second choice and Chelsea are discussing candidates for their No 1 role as they determine whether to sell Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid.
