The Belgian goalkeeper has been the subject of rumors regarding his immediate future, but the shot-stopper stepped up and denied such claims.

Regardles of what English media reports claim, Chelsea's goalkeeper seems to be quite sure where he wants to play next season.

During an interview with French outlet Le Parisien, the Belgian international revealed that the thought about leaving the Blues hasn't crossed his mind. In fact, Chelsea's starting goalkeeper ruled out joining PSG since he enjoys playing in the English top flight, something he would find hard to find in France.

"I have played a lot against PSG recently - twice last season, again this season in a friendly and twice more in the Champions League this year. They are a good club who win their league easily. Me, I like playing in England. Paris is a very good club but I am happy at Chelsea," Courtois stated.

The 2014 World Cup performer for Belgium shared his views about the source of such claims. 

"Rumours affect any club where things are going badly. People think the top players want to leave because they are not in the Champions League. Everyone knows it is our fault we will not play in that competition next year. It has happened to Manchester United and to Dortmund, and it is heartbreaking," he added.

Finally, the former Atlético Madrid goalie hinted he wants to have another crack at the EPL title next season, and in the end, return to the European competition.

"This year, we have not defended our title well like we needed to. We must regather our forces to return stronger and get back to the Champions League," he concluded.
