Courtois set to commit his future to the Blues.
After a decent start to life back at Chelsea following three years of success on-loan with Atletico Madrid, Thibaut Courtois is to be rewarded with a new contract.
The 22-year-old has replaced Petr Cech as No.1 at Stamford Bridge after the Czech Republic international had held the position for over a decade.
Yet Cech has been relegated to the bench by the presence of the new goalkeeper and Courtois will further establish himself with this new deal.
“It’s not yet signed. I am here with the national team so it is difficult, but when I am back at Chelsea I will probably sign the new contract,” the Belgian told Sky Sports.
Courtois was signed by the Blues in the summer of 2011 from Genk and immediately sent on-loan to the Vicente Calderon Stadium.
The ‘keeper’s arrival coincided with an upturn in form for Atleti and during his spell in the Spanish capital the Belgium international won La Liga, the Copa del Rey and Europa League.
Now back in West London Courtois is continuing to impress manager Jose Mourinho and Cech will be very lucky to get much game time at the Bridge.
