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

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,, on Thursday.

"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.
