The young defender has been with the club since 2007, but hasn't developed as they had hoped and will now move back to the country in which he was born

Chelsea defender Jeffrey Bruma has been rumored to be close to a switch to the Netherlands for the past several weeks, and the club have confirmed that only a medical stands in the way of Bruma becoming a fromer Chelsea player. The two clubs and Bruma have agreed to a deal which will see him joining the Dutch outfit for about €3 million, and the deal will include a buyback of some sort for Chelsea:

I'm certainly happy to see that Chelsea pushed for the buyback, as giving themselves options should Bruma ever develop into a top defender seems like a wise thing t do. Yhe odds are certainly against that happening, but you just never know.

Best of luck in the Netherlands Jeffrey, and hopefully you manage to do enough at PSV to force your way into consideration for the World Cup squad next season.
