Thibaut Courtois says he is committed to Chelsea

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has withdrawn from the Belgium squad for their friendly against Saudi Arabia on Wednesday morning (Singapore time) due to a hamstring injury, the Belgian Football Association (RBFA) said yesterday.

The deal to take Nunn to Stamford Bridge is expected to be rubberstamped at the end of the season, but Alex could allow him to make the move early if contracts are signed.

Just a thought, but if old Tibs is so intent on nipping all this pesky speculation in the bud, he might want to start by easing off on the Madrid stuff.

While the Belgium international's comments will alleviate some of the Chelsea fans' fears over his departure to Real Madrid this summer, the custodian also revealed that he wants to finalise his future before heading to the World Cup in Russian Federation to block any unwanted distractions.

Courtois has been suffering with a "muscular problem" in the last couple of weeks but he joined up with the Belgium squad in the hope he would be fit for Tuesday's friendly global against Saudi Arabia.

Chelsea will be desperate for Courtois - who has returned to the west Londoners for treatment - to face rivals Spurs on Sunday.
