Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has described Thibaut Courtois as "phenomenal".

Courtois, 21, who is poised to sign a new Chelsea contract, has spent three years on loan at Atletico Madrid and the Spanish team are keen to keep him for another year.

"He's a phenomenal talent," Schwarzer told the Daily Mail.

"He's done extremely well at Atletico and this is a huge year for him with the World Cup and title aspirations. There will be quite a lot of decisions made shortly about people's futures."
