Chelsea have said keeper Marco Ambrosio has left the club for good - not gone out on loan as was first thought.

It was reported the Italian had joined Zurich Grasshoppers on loan but Chelsea revealed his contract was cancelled.

The 31-year-old, behind Petr Cech and Carlo Cudicini in the pecking order, had two years left on his deal.

"Chelsea would like to thank Marco for the contribution he made to last season's notable achievements," said a club statement.

Ambrosio was thrust into the spotlight in Chelsea's run to the Champions League semi-final, standing in for the injured Cudicini.
