Cech played in his first Premier League match of the season last weekend, after replacing an injured Courtois during the Blues 2-0 victory over Arsenal, but reports in the Daily Mail have revealed that he may still leave to seek regular game time.

The Czech international, who has been at Chelsea since 2004, making almost 500 appearances in the process, has dropped down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge since Courtois returned from his loan spell with Atletico Madrid.

“I have not spoken to anyone, but I think they know me well enough at the club (Chelsea) to know that the situation is definitely not the way I would imagine,” the goalkeeper told reporters earlier today.

“With the Euros (in 2016) and the national team in mind, there is no time for me to sit on the bench and not to play. If the situation will not start to improve for me, then I will want to solve it.”

Cech is set to start for the Czech Republic against Turkey in a European Championship qualifier on Friday.
