Chelsea loanee Kevin De Bruyne is unsure whether he has a future in west London, but insists he'll only start thinking about his next move when his loan spell with Werder Bremen comes to an end.
The 21-year-old Belgium international signed for the Blues in January 2012, before being immediately sent back to Racing Genk for the remainder of the 2011/12 campaign.
De Bruyne was included in Chelsea's pre-season tour of North America under former manager Roberto Di Matteo, but is still yet to make his competitive debut for the Stamford Bridge club.
The summer signing of Brazil's attacking midfield starlet Oscar prompted Chelsea to send De Bruyne out on loan again, this time to the Bundesliga where he linked up with Werder Bremen.
And, having impressed during his time in Germany, Bremen boss Thomas Schaaf is keen to keep the youngster at the Weserstadion beyond the end of the current season.
However, De Bruyne rejected suggestions that discussions had already taken place regarding his long-term future.
"It is not the right time to talk about my future," he reflected in an interview with German newspaper Bild. "I think it will only happen around three match days before the end of the season, maybe even after the season."
Werder Bremen's sporting director, Thomas Eichin, was much more forthcoming with the club's intentions to secure the player's signature in the summer.
"We want to talk in the near future and check the situation," he confirmed. "We must get a feeling about how Kevin and his agent see the situation."
