Steve Harper and Richard Wright are also available on a free. But I'd also rather take a former English NT keeper (ok does not say much) over these two.

PL rules say we should have 3 keepers as Courtis is staying for another year on loan and Turnbull and Hilario are leaving we only have Cech and Blackman so we need to sign another :yes:

We have sam walker. :)

Sam Walker was on loan at Colchester last season but i think we need a bit more experienced goalkeeper someone on loan for 1 season :)

Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois to return to Atletico Madrid on loan

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has claimed he has been given permission to spend a third season on loan at Atletico Madrid.

He was quoted by media in Spain and Belgium as saying at a national team press conference in Kortrijk: "I've chosen to stay at Atletico.

"I have to continue playing and at Chelsea there's (Petr) Cech who has always been a great goalkeeper.

"At Atletico I'm sure I can play and I can continue to be the first-choice keeper of the Red Devils (Belgium).

"In the course of the season, we will see if I return to London."

"I spoke with Mourinho and he told me the best thing is to continue maturing," he added.

Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois wants extension on Spanish loan signed this week

Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois is staying on loan at Atletico Madrid after claiming returning to Stamford Bridge would damage his World Cup hopes.

Belgian keeper Courtois, 21, believes another year at Atletico will keep his international hopes alive but being Petr Cech’s understudy would hold him back.

Courtois said: “I have told Chelsea I want to stay at Atletico and I’ve told Chelsea this and hope it will be signed this week.

“Cech is a big keeper and I don’t want to be sitting on the bench in a World Cup year. It’s totally my choice and I’ve not spoken to (Jose) Mourinho about it. But I think the club has confidence in me to come back in a year’s time.”

Skysports quoted he has spoken with Jose, but Mirror quoted that he has not spoken with Jose yet. :confused:

Anyway, for certain he will going on loan again, it would be wise if we offer him a contract extension first before let him leave on loan.

To be fair..the Socceroos don't really have a keeper who can seriously challenge Schwarzer before WC 14.

This but I've always said that Langerak (Dortmund's #2) should be first choice for Australia..

He needs regular football...Langerak definitely has the talent, just needs a bit more exposure..

What about Mathew Ryan? I know he's young. But how good is he?

He moved to Club Brugge at the end of May for a reported 180,000...and apparently he's had trials at Spurs, Wigan, Celtic in the past year.

Hope he gets some experience in Belgium...him and Langerak should be competing for the Socceroos #1 jersey (if they develop as expected) once Schwarzer decides to call it a day.

(Note: I always keep a close eye on talented Australians...cause that's where I grew up! B) )

Yeah he is not very experienced but he is only 3rd choice. And if something long term happened to Cech we would probably recall courtois. So It would save us having to but a GK. And would help with the homegrown numbers.

I'd day he's the Aussie version of Joe Hart. Good goalkeeper but has these moments where he cocks up which leads to goals. He has talent though

Because I want him to be Chelsea's future keeper...what? You don't?

Of course i want, but is it the same for him? He will go for the 3th year on loan where he is loved. I'm not sure that he would sign a contract extension... May be he thinks that's the best for him is to wait until the end of his contract and to leave as free agent and to sign where he wants to play.

Nothing is guaranteed that he won't be loaned again and again, that's like that i see the thing

Didn't he say that Mou asked him to stay?

After next year he should stay and compete with Cech..

No he just said that mou called him

Courtois had daarover een gesprek met José Mourinho. "Ja, vorige week. Hij vroeg of het niet te lastig was om even te storen in de aanloop van de interland tegen Servië", vertelt hij in Het Nieuwsblad. "Er lag al langer een plan klaar tussen beide clubs dat ik volgend jaar nog een jaar bij Atlético blijf, maar als er nieuwe coach is, moet die ook akkoord gaan. Als het van hem afhing, had hij mij er liefst volgend seizoen bij gehad."

No point in him staying at Atletico for 'being loved'. They're absolutely horribly run and in a terrible financial state. If he signed there on a perm deal he'd be sold within 2 seasons.

What about Mark Schwartzer. from Fulham available on a free and wants to stay in London not a bad goalkeeper worth a 1 year contract :yes:

I don't think we have to worry about loosing Courtois permanently to Athletico. Just think of it this way. Let's say he wasn't our player but was actually owned by Athletico for these past 2 years and next summer we came calling for him to be our new number 1. You think he would turn us down? He'd look at it as a step-up.

Now if we promise him the number 1 shirt next year and then delay it and teams like Real and Barca come knocking then I can see that as a problem, but otherwise he'll be fine either with us or Athletico again since they are in Tier 2 in the club football.

Real - Don't need a goalie for a while, Casillas still has plenty years.

Barca - They need a goalie, but they'll address it this year so they should be out of the hunt for a while too.

United - De Gea, young.

Bayern - Neur, young.

Who else would come knocking that really would be a considerable step up from Athletico? I don't see anyone. I dare say we can even wait 2 years and he'll still be fine with it.
