Chelsea have today confirmed the signing of former England international, Rob Green.

Green joins the Blues as a third choice goalkeeper to replace Eduardo, and the former West Ham shot stopper has revealed that he’s excited about joining Chelsea.

He admitted that he is surprised about the move as he revealed to the official Chelsea website: “I’ve seemed to be linked with a lot of London clubs but this is a club that is at the pinnacle of Premier League and European football. As you are striving in your career, you want to aim high with the club you are at, and if it can’t be with the club you are at, clubs you want to go to.

“If you are playing well then hopefully you get linked to the top clubs and Chelsea is certainly one of them. To finally get to move here and move back geographically to somewhere I call home, then it is a fantastic move for me.”

When asked if he has a message for the Chelsea fans, he said: “It is a thrill and an honour to be here.”
