New Stamford Bridge signing expected to go to FC Twente.
Former KRC Genk starlet Kevin de Bruyne may have only just signed for Chelsea at the end of the January transfer window, but left immediately to go back to the Belgian club on loan for the rest of the season.
Still, that won’t be enough first team action for the youngster.
Chelsea boss Andre Villas Boas also wants to send de Bruyne on loan to FC Twente next season, according to Italian website Calcio Mercato.
It would appear that the 20 year-old is not deemed physically ready to cope with the high intensity demands of the Barclays Premier League, and he will go to the Dutch Eredivisie and attempt to both bulk up and improve his footballing mind.
De Bruyne has spent much of his career on the flanks, despite admitting his favourite position is just behind a striker, and that is largely because of his slight frame.
Still, his intelligence and vision is not in question, and once de Bruyne has grown out enough, he could live up to his considerable potential at Chelsea.
