thumbnail Hello,

The 19-year-old has insisted that he wants to remain in Spanish capital for another season before trying to make his mark in the Premier League with the Stamford Bridge side

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois says he is eager to spend a second year on loan at Atletico Madrid, revealing he has told Blues manager Andre Villas-Boas of his intentions.

The Belgian stopper signed for the Premier League side in the summer but was immediately shipped out on a short-term deal to Atletico to get more games under his belt.

Courtois has earned favourable reviews for his performances between the posts and the 19-year-old has indicated that he is looking to prolong his stay at the Vicente Calderon beyond the end of the season.

"I am very happy at Atletico and I am living a good experience," he told Marca.

"I would like to stay here one more year and I said this to Chelsea's manager [Andre Villas-Boas] on Sunday."

Courtois has featured 23 times for Atletico, who sit 10th in the Primera Division standings.
