London: Premier League football club Chelsea have allowed goalkeeper Petr Cech to seek a transfer this summer, the goalkeeper's agent confirmed.
The Czech Republic international has played as the second-string custodian to Thibaut Courtois this season after the latter returned from his loan at Atletico Madrid. Cech's representative Viktor Kolar says the keeper is keen to play in first-team football elsewhere and that Chelsea has agreed.

"Petr has a valid contract with his current club. However, I can confirm that we have been permitted by Chelsea to negotiate with interested parties," Kolar was quoted as saying by goal.com on Friday.
"Petr has confirmed his interest to play regularly at a top club."
The 32-year-old has played 14 games in all competitions this season but only five in Premier League as Mourinho's side secured the title. Cech joined the 'Blues' in 2004.
