Robert Green is not one of those goalkeepers that are regularly associated with elite clubs of the Premier League.
The experienced shot-stopper has played for Norwich City, West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers, Leeds United and Huddersfield Town.
The 38-year-old found himself without a club after being released by the Terriers at the end of last season.
In a surprising turn of events, Green is now on his way to Chelsea to play under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
On Thursday morning, Chelsea confirmed via their official website that the shot-stopper has signed a one-year deal with the five-time Premier League champions and is expected to become the club’s third-choice keeper.
Green played at West Ham for six years between 2006 and 2012, and in that time he earned promotion to the top flight.
Some Hammers fans still admire the goalkeeper, and a few have backed his move to Stamford Bridge.
Others would have liked to have seen Green return to the East London outfit.
