Thorgan Hazard signs for Chelsea

While we're still awaiting confirmation on the official website, Chelsea TV has gone ahead and confirmed that Thorgan Hazard will be joining Chelsea from Lens on Blues News. That's now 8 Belgian players signed in the last 12 months by Chelsea FC, and it's yet another attacking midfielder/winger added to the mix in the 18-23 range at Stamford Bridge. It's unlikely that the younger Hazard will feature with the senior squad in more than a cameo role this season, but I'd assume we'll be seeing a lot of him at the U21 level. Welcome to Chelsea Thorgan, hopefully we'll eventually see you in the first team.

Update: Here's the website confirming it as well
