Thibaut Courtois will delay further talks over a new Chelsea contract until the end of the season.

"I prefer to focus on the games, and there will be time enough towards the end of the season to have talks".

"Regarding my contract, that's the thing where Chelsea must deal with my agent (Christophe Henrotay)".

Courtois was speaking to the media ahead of Wednesday's UEFA Champions League group-stage clash with Qarabag in Azerbaijan, where a win would seal Chelsea's spot in the competition's round of 16.

The Belgian goalkeeper has confirmed that there have been no new developments over his contract with Chelsea and he is set to enter the final 12 months of his contract next summer.

The Broncos, who have lost six straight games, fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on Monday and promoted Bill Musgrave to replace him in the position.

The uncertainty surrounding the twenty-five year old will concern the Premier League champions who will not want to see him leave on a free transfer with both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid monitoring the situation.

Courtois is not rushing to resolve his future.

Courtois added: "The thing for me, the most important thing, is to perform well for myself and the team". It came to nothing and talks have been stalled until the end of this season, amidst interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Once promoted to first choice by the Blues, the commanding shot-stopper has gone on to make 125 appearances for the club - landing two Premier League titles and a League Cup along the way.

Courtois was initially loaned out to La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid before returning to Stamford Bridge at the start of the 2014/2015 season and taking Petr Cech's place as the club's number one keeper.
