Premier League side, Chelsea, are looking to sign veteran goalkeeper Robert Green in a shock free transfer.

The 38-year-old goalkeeper is heading to Stamford Bridge to join as cover after a year spent on the Huddersfield Town bench.

The former England international was considering hanging up his gloves after being released by the Terriers and taking up a new career.

However, the Chelsea call is too good to refuse for the former West Ham and Leeds United shot-stopper.

Jamal Blackman and Eduardo are out on loan as the veteran goalkeeper is set to sign for just a season.

Green may play in some cup competitions as he waits for a game behind Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero, who are currently the Blues number one and two.

He began his career at Norwich City and made over 200 appearances for the Canaries before the Hammers signed him in 2006.

After six years at Upton Park Green moved across London to QPR for a further four seasons in the Championships.
