Kevin De Bruyne was on Monday set to undergo a medical at Chelsea ahead of his move from Genk, according to the Belgian club.
The 20-year-old midfielder was on the brink of joining the Blues in a reported £6.7million deal on a five-and-a-half-year contract that would see him loaned back to his current team for the rest of the season.
Asked if De Bruyne was at Chelsea for a medical, a Genk spokesmen told Press Association Sport: "Yes, that is correct."
