On-loan Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has admitted that he is unsure of who he will be playing for next season - but says he wants a resolution either way by March.

The Belgian has spent the last two seasons on loan with Atletico Madrid having signed for Chelsea from Genk in 2011.

Courtois has impressed in his time at the Vicente Calderon and reports have suggested that Atletico are looking at ways to sign him permanently. Barcelona have also been linked with a move for the talented youngster.

The 21-year-old insists that as yet no decision has been made over his future - but says that he would like some clarification as soon as possible.

"About my future, I cannot wait much longer,” he told AS. “I need to make a decision with Chelsea as soon as possible, in March, but at the moment I do not really want to talk because there are so many games and you must be focused.” 

Courtois hasn't played a single game for Chelsea since signing for the club, but could challenge established number one Petr Cech should he head back to Stamford Bridge for next season.

However Cech is still rated as one of the finest goalkeepers in the Premier League and at the age of 31 still has plenty of years at the top ahead of him.

That may prompt Courtois to either extend his loan move in Spain for another season, or seek a permanent transfer elsewhere if Chelsea aren't willing to offer him regular football.
