Chelsea winger Kevin de Bruyne and his representatives will seek talks with Jose Mourinho to assess whether or not the young Belgian will stay with the club beyond the January transfer window.

De Bruyne started the club's opening two Premier League fixtures of the season but has featured infrequently since, with the 22-year-old mainly utilised in cup competitions.

Last season De Bruyne spent the entirety of the campaign away from Stamford Bridge on loan with Werder Bremen, and there is the increasing belief that the player will leave the club temporarily again this winter.

However, the agent of the Belgium international insists no decision has been made on the future of De Bruyne, and talks will be held with the club this week to discover his fate beyond the transfer deadline.

"We will make an evaluation with the club in the next few days and decide what is the best solution," Patrick De Koster told

"Of course, Kevin is a player who likes to play regularly but we know Chelsea is one of the biggest clubs in the world and there is always going to be competition.

"He has told me that every day he is training like a demon because it means a lot to him. But I will not say that he has to move in January - we will wait for the evaluation from the club."

De Bruyne was a £6.7 million acquisition by Chelsea in the January transfer window of 2012, before immediately being loaned back to Genk. He has made only six competitive appearances for Chelsea.
