Premier League champions Chelsea have completed the signing of free agent goalkeeper Marco Amelia on a contract until the end of the season.
Regular number one Thibaut Courtois was sidelined in September with a knee injury that forced him to undergo surgery, manager Jose Mourinho stating the Belgian would be out for “quite a long time”.
And 33-year-old Amelia arrives to provide cover for Asmir Begovic, having spent the final months of last season with Serie B side Perugia.
The former Milan goalkeeper and Italy international will be available for Chelsea’s return to Premier League action against Aston Villa on October 17 following the international break.
