Blues snap up Eden Hazard's brother, Thorgan
Wednesday 25 July 2012
Thorgan Hazard will join his older brother Eden at Stamford Bridge next season after Chelsea confirmed his signing from Lens.
The 19-year-old had played only 11 times for the Ligue 2 club but the Blues clearly see some potential in Hazard, who had just a year remaining on his contract at Lens, although they revealed the midfielder could be immediately loaned to another club.
"He will now join our under-21 squad, managed by Dermot Drummy, to continue his pre-season training and a loan move is being considered to continue his development," read a statement on the club's official website.
Hazard's sibling Eden, who won the Ligue 1 player of the year last season, joined the west London club last month from Lille for a reported £32m.
