Premier League champions Chelsea have made their first signing ahead of the new season, bringing in former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero on a free transfer.

Caballero was one of five senior players allowed to leave City at the end of their contracts by Pep Guardiola, with Chelsea moving quickly to secure the 35-year-old on unspecified terms.

He will provide cover for regular goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois following the sale of Asmir Begovic to Bournemouth.

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