Chelsea are set to agree a loan deal with German club Werder Bremen for Kevin de Bruyne.

The 21-year old Belgian winger joined the Blues from Genk in January but spent the remainder of the season on loan with his former club.

Now it appears that Chelsea want to further his development in a first team environment with a loan to Werder Bremen set to be completed soon.

"I can confirm that. We are to work out a loan switch," Bremen general manager Klaus Allofs told Kicker.

"We have had many discussions and some talks lately and I feel we are at an advanced level regarding this loan deal."
