The Blues faced a race against time as to sign the young global before the Premier League transfer window closes on Thursday at 18:00 CEST - tasked with convincing the shot-stopper to move to England, despite Kepa having just renewed his contract.

"Athletic thank the player for his contribution throughout the time he has been at the club".

Courtois only had a year left on his deal and has been absent from training this week as he looked to push through a move before the transfer window ended for Chelsea on Thursday.
