Atletico Madrid are keen to hold onto Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois for another season.

While Atletico directors insist they haven't spoken to Courtois about his situation at Chelsea, they are now working on extending his loan for a fourth season.

The Belgian has no interest in returning to Chelsea to play second fiddle to Petr Cech next season, despite the intentions of manager Jose Mourinho.

Atletico will push to reach an agreement with Chelsea in January so they can plan for the summer market with their keeper position settled.
