Reports from the Netherlands indicate that Jeffrey Bruma's move to PSV is set to be completed

It looks like the move that Jeffrey Bruma wanted is about to come to fruition. As we reported a few weeks ago, the Dutch central defender, who had been on loan at Hamburg for the last two seasons, along with the Chelsea brass were in talks with PSV.

PSV were Bruma's preferred destination, and since he did not have much of a future at Stamford Bridge, it's nice to see that he will apparently get his wish and get to play in Eindhoven next season.

De 21-jarige centrale verdediger keert graag terug op vaderlandse bodem, liet hij al diverse malen doorschemeren, en Chelsea en PSV stevenen volgens De Telegraaf af op een akkoord. De viervoudig Oranje-international, die naar verluidt zo'n 3,5 miljoen euro moet kosten, kan in Eindhoven een handtekening zetten onder een vierjarig contract.

According to De Telegraaf - although this report is technically not straight from that source - the 21-year-old central defender will be making the move (gladly) back to his homeland for a decent sum of €3.5 million. That may sound low, but consider that Bruma came to Chelsea at age 15 for a measly €100,000. Profit.

After a standout season in the Chelsea U18 team, Bruma became a consistent member of Carlo Ancelotti's first team squad in 2009 and 2010. However, despite catching the eye of the Italian, Bruma only was able to collect 10 senior appearances before getting loaned out to Leicester City with the arrival of David Luiz. Having spent last two and half years since then playing away from Stamford Bridge on loan, and with just a year left on his contract, this move should not be a surprise.

Good luck in all your future endeavors, Jeffrey. Hope to see you in Dutch Orange at a World Cup or two in the near future.
