LONDON (AP) - Chelsea says it has signed goalkeeper Marco Amelia on a free transfer until the end of the season.

The 33-year-old Amelia will provide cover for injured first-choice keeper Thibaut Courtois, who faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to a right knee injury that needed surgery.

Amelia will wear No. 32 and is eligible to play in Chelsea’s next game, against Aston Villa, on Oct. 17.

Amelia played for Italian Serie B side Perugia last season, following his departure from AC Milan after four years.
