Chelsea are on the brink of confirming a new deal for Thibaut Courtois.

The Daily Mail says both parties are close to agreeing a two-year extension, which would take Courtois deal to the end of the 2017/18 season. The new deal will include a significant pay increase on his current £30,000-per-week wages.

With Petr Cech expected to remain Chelsea's No. 1 next season, Atletico Madrid want to secure a fourth consecutive season-long loan for Courtois next season.
