Thibaut Courtois has praised Chelsea for not overpaying for players during the transfer window.

In a sly dig to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ross Barkley and Fernando Llorente, who all opted against moves to Stamford Bridge, the Blues goalkeeper believes the club had a stellar transfer window.

“The market now is a bit crazy,” said Courtois. “Really high prices for players who maybe don’t have that value. It makes it hard for teams to buy players for the right price.

“But after all I think Chelsea did a good job and I think we have a good squad to face the season.”
