The goalkeeper joined the Blues from Genk in 2011 and returned to Stamford Bridge this summer having spent the previous three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid, where he lifted both the La Liga and Europa League titles.
He has also taken over from Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet in between the sticks for the Belgian national side, and played a key role for the side at this summer’s World Cup.
“I’m very happy with this new deal, it’s really nice to have signed this new contract for five years,” he said.
“My future was already sorted but it’s nice to know I’m going to be here for another five years and now I can just concentrate on playing games.”
Courtois has also started all three of Chelsea’s Premier League encounters so far this term, and looks to have replaced the veteran Petr Cech as the club’s first choice stopper.
