Premier League clubs are in contact with Chelsea about taking Thibaut Courtois on-loan next season.

The Sun says Fulham, Southampton and Wigan are battling to take Courtois on loan next season.

Belgian international Courtois is seen as Petr Cech's eventual replacement at Stamford Bridge.

But he has never played for Chelsea since an £8.5million move from Genk two years ago and has spent the past two seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid.

The Blues now want the brilliant 20-year-old to get a year's experience in the Prem before he challenges Cech.
