Bremen sign de Bruyne from Chelsea

Chelsea winger Kevin de Bruyne has agreed to join German side Werder Bremen on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old Belgian arrived at Stamford Bridge during the January transfer window and was immediately loaned back to former club Genk.

He made his Chelsea debut in the 4-2 friendly victory over Seattle Sounders during the recent tour to America, but Chelsea today confirmed he is to continue his development at Werder Bremen.

De Bruyne is determined to make a success of his time at Werder Bremen.

“It’s good that the transfer to Bremen is now completed,” he told the club’s official website, www.werder.de.

“SV Werder have a big tradition and play in one of the best leagues in Europe with full stadiums all the time.

“I would like to prove successful with my new team-mates.”

De Bruyne, who has been capped twice by Belgium, scored eight goals in 22 games upon his return to Genk.
