Chelsea in talks with veteran goalkeeper Rob Green over one-year deal

Chelsea are in talks with former England goalkeeper Rob Green over a move to Stamford Bridge, sources have told ESPN FC.

Green, 38, is a free agent after leaving Huddersfield earlier this summer after failing to make a single appearance during the club's maiden Premier League campaign.

Chelsea are ready to offer the veteran goalkeeper a one-year deal to move to Stamford Bridge with Green expected to finalise his move later this week.

Chelsea are looking for a third-choice goalkeeper after allowing Eduardo and Jamal Blackman leave on loan this summer to Vitesse Arnhem and Leeds respectively.

Former West Ham and Norwich goalkeeper Green boasts a wealth of experience having made over 650 appearances in his career to date, and his arrival would boost Chelsea's homegrown quota.

Chelsea could also be in the market for a new No. 1 goalkeeper as Thibaut Courtois continues to be strongly linked with Real Madrid.
