Chelsea sign former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero on a free transfer, with the Argentine expected to deputise for Blues number one Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea have signed former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero on a free transfer.

Caballero, 35, made 17 Premier League appearances for Man City last season as he shared the gloves with Claudio Bravo.

The experienced stopper decided against penning an extension at the Etihad Stadium, but his agent Adrian Faija revealed earlier this month that he wanted to continue his career in England.

Chelsea have now announced the signing of the Argentine, who is expected to provide back-up to number one Thibaut Courtois next season after Asmir Begovic left for Bournemouth last month.

"I am very happy to join Chelsea, the champions of England. I am looking forward to meeting the guys and helping the club achieve more success in the coming season," Caballero told the club's official website.

Caballero joined Man City from Malaga in the summer of 2014.
