Chelsea winger wants to leave

Published Add your comment

Chelsea winger Kevin De Bruyne hopes to leave the club on loan before the close transfer window in order to further his education away from Stamford Bridge.

The Blues clinched a deal for the young Belgian in January, but immediately loaned him back to Genk to allow him to finish the season with the club.

De Bruyne joined up with Chelsea for the first time during pre-season but is unlikely to feature prominently in the immediate plans of Roberto di Matteo, particularly given the club's summer transfer activity.

Werder Bremen are interested in taking the 21-year-old on loan for next season to afford him the opportunity to play regularly, and De Bruyne is keen to leave Chelsea in the short-term.

"Coach [Roberto] Di Matteo understands my situation," De Bruyne told Bild. "I want to leave Chelsea and Werder is a good team."

De Bruyne cost Chelsea £7 million during the winter transfer window, and joins a growing contingent of Belgian players plying their trade for the European champions.

Chelsea also have among their ranks full Belgium internationals Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois, along with under-19 player Thorgan Hazard.
