thumbnail Hello,

The 19-year-old has insisted that he wants to stay at the Spanish capital club for another season before trying to make his mark at Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois says he is eager to spend a second year on loan at Atletico Madrid. The Belgian goalkeeper signed for Chelsea in the summer but was immediately shipped out on loan 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 is quoted as saying by 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.
