Australian football's veteran goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer, the first overseas player to register 500 English premier league appearances, has signed with Chelsea on a free transfer until the end of next year's World Cup in Brazil.

The 40-year-old says it didn't take much convincing to join one of the biggest and best clubs in the world.
