Courtois: Chelsea want me

Teenage goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois claims Chelsea want him as the long-term successor to Petr Cech, but says he will stay at Genk until he develops.

Courtois, 19, is happy to go back to Belgian champions Genk on loan if he completes a move to Stamford Bridge this summer as he admits he is not yet ready to challenge Cech for the No. 1 position at Stamford Bridge.

"It's wonderful that they [Chelsea] have such confidence in me and see me as the successor of Petr Cech," Courtois told FM Brussel. "Chelsea has a great sporting level and I can grow at ease for a few years until I reach the first team.

"This will not happen in a year or two, but three, four or five years. I might as well develop myself quietly."

He added: "No matter what happens, I'll play again next season in the Genk jersey. Maybe I'll stay two years, it will depend on how I develop here. Then we'll see if I will be lent to an English team."

The keeper, who is under contract until June 2014, could form part of a double deal with Genk midfielder Kevin de Bruyne, who has continually been linked with a move to the London club.
