Former Norwich City goalkeeper Robert Green is reportedly on the verge of joining Chelsea.

The 38-year-old, who spent last season at Huddersfield Town without making a Premier League appearance, is set to undergo a medical at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

It is thought the move will help the Blues meet their homegrown quota next season.

Green made 241 appearances for the Canaries before leaving to join West Ham for £2m in 2006.

His move to Chelsea comes amid doubts over Thibaut Courtois' future with the Londoners with Real Madrid reportedly keen on the Belgian international, who is entering the final year of his contract.

New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is seeking talks with the goalkeeper, who wants a return to Madrid, where he spent two years on loan with Atletico Madrid earlier in his career.

If Courtois does get his move then Jack Butland and Pepe Reina have reportedly been lined up as replacements.
