Green was considering hanging up his gloves and taking up a new career.

However, the Chelsea call is too good to refuse for the 38-year-old.

The former West Ham and Leeds star will sign for a season while Jamal Blackman and Eduardo are out on loan.

Green may get games in Cup competitions as he waits for a game behind Thibaut Courtois and Willy Caballero who are currently one and two in the pecking order.

After six years at Upton Park he moved across London to QPR for a further four seasons.

Green won a total of 12 England caps and began the 2010 World Cup as No1 but lost his place after his error gifted USA’s Clint Dempsey an equaliser in the opening game. His last cap came against Norway in 2012.

  1. Love The Saturdays!

    Silly name, but very good looking girls with some great tunes, extremely well produced. If their management do their job well they could be as big as Girls Aloud. They’re easily as good in the vocal department (that’s not so hard). But they might actually be able to defeat Girls Aloud on the hotness front as well in the future too. Someone’s got to take on Girls Aloud’s mantle once they throw in the towel and I hope it’s this lot. Frankie is simply incredible, on a Cheryl Tweedy kind of level!!!!
