Chelsea have confirmed on their official website that they have signed veteran Portuguese goalkeeper Eduardo from Dinamo Zagreb.

The Blues have Thibaut Courtois and Asmir Begovic at the Stamford Bridge club, with the 33-year-old expected to be third choice in West London.

Eduardo has penned a one-year deal with Antonio Conte’s men and brings considerable experience to the Premier League club.

The former Braga goalkeeper has also played in Italy with Genoa, while he has earned 34 caps with Portugal since making his international debut back in 2009.

Eduardo was part of the Portuguese squad that claimed Euro 2016 in France earlier this summer but was understudy to Sporting Lisbon stopper Rui Patricio.

In all likelihood the new man will feature for the club’s reserves and will only be called into the first-team firing line should injuries occur to either Courtois or Begovic.

Details of a fee have not been disclosed, but Eduardo becomes Chelsea’s third summer signing.
