Deal agreed for goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois

Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign the highly-rated young goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois from Genk, the Belgian champions have confirmed. Reports suggest the fee could be as much as €9m (£7.9m). Genk announced in a statement on their website that they were left with no option other than to let the 19-year-old leave when he did not appear for Saturday's friendly against Lyon. They said Chelsea's offer was "by far the largest bid" they have ever received for a player. The 6ft 6in goalkeeper, who has been compared to former Manchester United shot-stopper Edwin van der Sar, has been earning rave reviews for his performances in Belgium as first choice 'keeper for Genk. He also received a first call-up to the senior Belgium squad, but is aware breaking into the Chelsea team will be a much tougher proposition.
