Werder Bremen chief Klaus Allofs has confirmed plans to sign Chelsea winger Kevin de Bruyne.

Werder hope to take De Bruyne on-loan for the new season.

"It looks good. We have been in contact for several months with the player, his agent and his club. But it is not a done deal yet," said Allofs.

"A loan would certainly be worthwhile.

"The case will be completed next week as the British are back from their US trip."
