Thibaut Courtois has insisted that he is “proud” to play for Chelsea FC and is not thinking about quitting the west London club at the moment.

The Belgian shot-stopper is widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s finest goalkeepers and he was in top form to help Chelsea FC win the Premier League title in two of the last three seasons.

Courtois’ long-term future at Chelsea FC has started to be a source of speculation in recent months because his current contract is set to expire at the end of next season.

If the Blues are unable to convince him to sign a new deal this summer, they could look to offload the 25-year-old this year rather than risk losing him for free next summer.

However, the goalkeeper himself has insisted that he is planning to sit down with Chelsea FC to discuss his contract situation at the end of the season.

Speaking in an interview with Ziggo Sports, Courtois said: “I am still proud to play at Chelsea and I want to achieve success.

“I have one year [left on my] contract and feel good at Chelsea, at the end of the season we will sit down together and set out a vision.

“I know that I will be at Chelsea next year as well.”

Courtois will be hoping to feature for Chelsea FC when the Blues return to Premier League action on Sunday with a crunch clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Blues are currently fifth in the table as they look to break back into the top four before the end of the season.
