Thibaut Courtois has admitted his agent has asked Chelsea if he can seal a move away from Stamford Bridge.

The Belgium international, who joined Chelsea in 2011, is yet to play a competitive game for the Blues.

He has instead spent the last two and a half seasons on loan at La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid - a spell which has allowed Courtois to blossom into an outstanding goalkeeper.

Courtois is scheduled to return to Chelsea in the summer, however the 21-year-old has made it clear he will not move back to the Blues if he is to play understudy to current number one Petr Cech.

Jose Mourinho is unlikely to ditch Cech at the end of the season, which could force the club into selling the highly-rated shot stopper.

Courtois, speaking to the London Evening Standard, said on the prospect of returning to England at the end of the season.

He said: "I know this, but it depends on Chelsea and what they ask. First, my agent is talking to Chelsea, to ask if I could talk to other clubs.

"Then we'll know a bit more. Atletico will wait for what Chelsea has to say.

"First, we want to hear from Chelsea what they are going to do and then we'll see."
