Chelsea defender Jeffrey Bruma is set to join Hamburg according to his agent.

Skysports.com reports how the 19-year-old Dutchman will link up with the Bundesliga outfit on an initial two-year loan, with the Blues retaining an option to recall him in the summer of 2012.

Bruma follows former Chelsea teammates Michael Mancienne, Gokhan Tore and Jacopo Sala to Hamburg, after the recent appointment of ex-Blues sporting director Frank Arnesen.

Arnesen played a pivotal role in the Stamford Bridge raid that has now extended to the capture of a fourth Chelsea youngster.

Bruma's agent Wessel Weezenberg is hopeful the move will give his client the chance to secure more regular first-team football.




"It is important Jeffrey gets playing. For him this is a good step," Weezenberg told Voetbal International.

"We have chosen stability for Jeffrey. These two years Jeffrey has to play and he can settle in this way.

"At Chelsea that will be difficult, but in Hamburg the chance is bigger. However, he will have to prove it by himself.

"For him it is a good step. Hamburg is and remains a top team, with a fantastic stadium and a giant fanbase."
