Thibaut Courtois has revealed that he is close to signing a new contract with Chelsea.

The 22-year-old has been installed as the west London club’s number one goalkeeper after spending the previous three seasons on loan to Atletico Madrid.

When I am back at Chelsea I will probably sign the new contract

And the Belgium international is set to be rewarded with a new deal at the west London club in the coming weeks.

“It’s not yet signed. I am here [in Belgium] with the national team so it is difficult, but when I am back at Chelsea I will probably sign the new contract,” Courtois told Sky Sports.

Courtois also revealed that he has sympathy for Petr Cech, who he has replaced as Chelsea’s first-choice between the posts.

“We don’t talk about the situation, but of course I know he has played 10 years at Chelsea and that now I am playing and for him it’s not the nicest situation,” added Courtois.

“But that is the decision of the board and the trainer. He is working hard in training to be ready when I cannot play or I am maybe not playing well. We work well together.

“As a professional and a winner you always want to play every game, so we will see what the decision is of the coach. But of course I am a professional player and I want to play every game that is possible.”
