Chelsea snap up Schwarzer on one year deal

Chelsea have signed goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer on a one year contract, Sky Sports understands.

The 40 year old was released by the Blues West London rivals Fulham last month after five years at Craven Cottage, and becomes Jose Mourinho’s third signing since retaking the reins at Stamford Bridge.

Schwarzer moved to England in July 1996, making thirteen appearances for Bradford City before moving to Middlesbrough six months later.

During his eleven-and-a-half year spell in the North East, the Australia international turned out almost 450 times; the highlight coming in the 2004 Carling Cup final victory over Bolton Wanderers.

Schwarzer secured a free transfer to Fulham in 2008, missing only a handful of league games during his time at the club.

He is the only overseas player to have made over 500 Premier League appearances, though he is likely to spend the majority of the next twelve months as Petr Cech’s understudy.

His arrival is will almost certainly see an end to the clubs pursuit of Norwich City’s John Ruddy, for whom they had an improved, £6m bid rejected yesterday.
