The 30-year-old, who has already enjoyed spells in England with Arsenal and Stoke, has fully recovered from an illness which threatened to end his career.

"It's great to be here and I'm happy to have signed a short-term deal," Svard told the club's official website.

"I've been out for a long time with a virus, but I'm back and healthy. I'm ready to play games, my match fitness is not 100% but that's improving. Training is good and tough and once I get my chance I will be alright.

"I want to get back to the level that I used to be and play as many games as possible. I'm happy that the team are doing well, it will be tough to get in and the boys look sharp at training. Competition is tough and that's what I need."

Svard played European football with Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes and moves to Hansa Rostock and Dutch side Roda JC followed prior to contracting the illness.

Since returning to football he has played for Danish side Silkeborg IF and more recently Sweden's Syrianska.

Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth added: "Sebastian's ex-Arsenal and he's played in Europe. He has an absolute wealth of experience and is a real calm-headed, quality footballer. He's everything that you would want in a midfield general."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
