Amelia is believed to have signed to act as cover for Asmir Begovic who has been Chelsea goalie since Thibaut Courtois got injured earlier in the season.

Amelia has represented Italy nine times and was part of the squad that won the 2006 FIFA World Cup, and was also included for Euro 2008.

Chelsea find themselves 16th on the Barclays premier league log after conceding 17 goals in their opening eight games and Amelia has been signed as an emergency backup.
