Sidwell delighted with Chelsea chance

Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell admits five years ago playing for one of the Premiership's biggest clubs was the way off the radar.

Sidwell was cut loose by Arsenal in 2002 and rebuilt his career playing with Reading in the Championship and last season in the top-flight.

He said: "If you'd asked me about the chances of signing for a team like Chelsea back then, I'd have said it was very unlikely."
