Chelsea Football Club is pleased to announce Thibaut Courtois has today signed a new five-year contract.

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 was also an important member of the Belgian side that reached the World Cup quarter-finals in Brazil this summer.

Courtois said: ‘I’m very happy with this new deal, it’s really nice to have signed this new contract for five years.

‘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.’

The 22-year-old has started each of our three league games this season, impressing with his shot-stopping and dominance of his area.
