It's confirmed...Thorgan Hazard is coming to Chelsea

The official website of RC Lens just gave us an update on their transfer dealings. The whole article is available here, but the relevant portions to Chelsea fans can be found below:

Thorgan Hazard

AS : "It should be officially tomorrow. This is one of the players on which there were. He sees the game, is intelligent and is a very good footballer. There was no question of letting him go. I met him very quickly after my arrival, to show him my confidence. He still had one year contract and he proposed to extend but he told me four eyes it did not interest him and he wanted to leave Lens. And I realized, after 48 hours, why, when I learned that Chelsea wanted. But I understand. Now I think that staying in Lens was a very good solution for him to continue to flourish. "

JL : "A boy of 19 years his elder brother who signs in Chelsea, and is urged also by the same club, who won the Champions League! Congratulations to Thorgan. After, unfortunately we can not go against such an opportunity for the boy. Good luck to him, and he continues to work and grow. "

While I was a bit skeptical of some of the early reports, this one is hard to argue with. Thorgan Hazard will be joining Chelsea along with his brother Eden, bringing the the Belgian contingent signed by Michael Emenalo to 8 in the last 12 months. He's a talented prospect, so it will be fun to watch him develop. Welcome to Chelsea Thorgan Hazard.
