The agent of Chelsea winger Kevin De Bruyne has confirmed that he is set to discuss a potential January move away from Stamford Bridge for his client with the club.

The 22-year-old Belgian returned to London this season following a successful loan spell in the Bundesliga, but has struggled for first-team action after initially appearing to be a part of Jose Mourinho’s plans.

Interest in his signature is high, with Werder Bremen – for whom he played last term – Bayer Leverkusen, Schalke and Wolfsburg all keen to secure a permanent loan deal for his services.

The player himself is also open to a switch, with regular action ahead of the World Cup a priority.

His agent, Patrick De Koster, says that he will be sitting down with Chelsea soon, and that interest in his client is high:

“I am going to fly over to London to find a proper solution with Chelsea.” He is quoted by the London Evening Standard.

“Should Kevin be granted a transfer, I will be immediately on the phone to Michael Reschke (Leverkusen’s general manager). We have a great relationship with him.

“Clubs like Borussia Dortmund, Schalke and Wolfsburg have also enquired.

“Kevin will decide which club offers the best future for him on a sporting level.”

De Bruyne was Belgium’s top scorer in the successful World Cup qualification campaign, but is aware that he must be playing regularly to earn a spot in their final squad for the showpiece tournament.
