De Bruyne unsure over loan plans

New Chelsea signing Kevin De Bruyne has revealed he is unsure where he will be playing next season.

• De Bruyne signs for Chelsea

Chelsea signed De Bruyne, 20, from Genk on transfer deadline day, but the attacking midfielder will remain with the Belgian club until the end of the season.

It has been reported that De Bruyne could also spent next season on loan at Genk and, while that remains a possibility, it appears the Belgium international has set his sights on a stint in one of Europe's elite leagues.

"The move to Chelsea is something I always wanted," he told the media in his homeland. "Next season, I would like to play in a league of a higher level than the one in Belgium.

"There has been contact [about a loan elsewhere] but no decision as yet. There have also been negotiations over whether I will play for Genk again next season, but there's nothing about that in the contract.

"This transfer is a quite a big step forwards for my career, but for now I am just hoping to play well for Genk for the next six months and avoid injury."

Chelsea signed goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois from Genk in the summer before sending him on a season-long loan to Atletico Madrid.
