Belgium playmaker Eden Hazard has been backed by his international team-mates to be a major hit in English football.

Hazard looks set to join Chelsea from French side Lille after he wrote on Twitter on Monday evening: "I'm signing for the champion's league winner".

His international teammate Thomas Vermaelen told Sky Sports News: "He is a great player with a lot of special qualities. I think he is a player people go to the stadiums for. People will love him and love watching him playing football, so I think he is a good player for the Premier League."
