Keeper Hedman seals Chelsea move

Chelsea have signed former Sweden goalkeeper Magnus Hedman until the end of the season.

Hedman won 55 caps for his country and has experience of British football after spells at Coventry and Celtic.

The 33-year-old has been working for Swedish television channel TV4 since retiring from the game in 2005.

He will act as cover to Carlo Cudicini and Henrique Hilario with Petr Cech set to be on the sidelines until late January after fracturing his skull.

Czech international Cech had two metal plates inserted into his head after sustaining the injury in October's Premiership win at Reading.

Previous third-choice Hilario has deputised for Cech and Cudicini, who was also knocked unconscious at Reading but returned for Chelsea's League Cup win over Aston Villa.

Hedman's rubbish. Wonder what's up with that?

Way off topic but knew this guy who had some massive stainless steel plates in his head. Older guy when he got them too. Miracle he'd survived the injury without any brain damage but he did. Some lads are tough old buggers let me tell you. It was neat because I would call on his shop and he'd have these x-rays of his skull thumbtacked to the paneling in his office, just above his palour ashtray.

Don't know if it's true or not but he said that they normaly use a ceramic/plastic plate but because he needed such a big plate they had to go with the stainless steel. But it made his head cold so he had to wear a touque by mid-September on. Great guy. Salt-of-the-earth sort but a real miserable bastard to sometimes.
