Courtois keen to extend Blues stay
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is hopeful of being rewarded with a new improved contract on the back of a title-winning season.

The Belgium international kept 16 clean sheets to help the Blues reclaim the Premier League trophy from Leicester, earning him the Golden Glove award.

Courtois' fine performances saw him linked with a move to Real Madrid, who are expected to replace first-choice gloveman Keylor Navas during the off-season.

But the 25-year-old is enjoying his stay at Stamford Bridge and wants nothing more than to sign on with Antonio Conte's side, his current deal set to expire in 2019.

"Contract talks haven't opened but I am happy at Chelsea," Courtois told Sky Sports. "I hope they reward me with a good contract, then there will be no doubt I will sign it."

The west Londoners missed out on the domestic double after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup final on Saturday – a disappointing experience for Courtois.

"It's not a good feeling now," he told the club's official website. "I had the same thing in Spain when I won the league and then lost the Champions League.

"We wanted to end on a high, now we feel sad. Winning is everything so this is hard to face but we have to try to forget it."
