LOAN WATCH: Atletico loanee Courtois wants Cech's Chelsea spot

Thibaut Courtois is determined to force his way into the Chelsea first team next season.

The 21-year old Belgian goalkeeper is again on loan with Spanish side Atletico Madrid but is intent on returning to Stamford Bridge next summer and dethroning Blues number one Petr Cech.

"The club [Chelsea] and Jose Mourinho wanted me back for this season," he told reporters. "They also considered the option of sending me out to a team in the Premier League.

"But I was not interested in this option, I feel good in Madrid and wanted to play in the Champions League with Atletico.

"I was not afraid of fighting for a spot with Petr Cech. I have no fear of anyone, I believe in my qualities."
