Rob Green on the brink of surprise Chelsea move

Green will act as back-up for Caballero and Courtois

Green will act as back-up for Caballero and Courtois

The 38-year-old has agreed terms with the club and is due to undergo a medical later today.

In what Sun reporter Alan Nixon calls a "shock free transfer", Chelsea are going to land former Leeds United keeper Rob Green.

Following the move he said: "It has been a whirlwind 24 hours".

Green's most likely game time will come in cup competitions as he is behind Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero, who are first and second in the pecking order as it stands.

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

Qualcomm unveils 5G antenna for next-generation smartphones
Both the QTM052 and the QPM56xx have begun sampling to customers, with devices due to launch as early as the first half of 2019. The signal interference is the biggest hindrance when it comes to developing the millimeter waves into 5G.

Green will only be Chelsea's third choice goalkeeper and is highly unlikely to play for the first team but he provides them with an experienced option and will boost their homegrown quota.

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

The Belgian number one has made no secret of his desire to move to Spain, with two of the player's children living with his ex-girlfriend in Madrid.

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.

Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel and Stoke City's Jack Butland have been highlighted as probable targets to take up the number one role at Stamford Bridge ahead of the upcoming new Premier League season.
