KEVIN DE BRUYNE SET FOR CHELSEA MEDICAL AHEAD OF MOVE FROM GENK

Genk midfielder Kevin de Bruyne will undergo a medical at Chelsea ahead of his proposed move to Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian champions confirmed the 20-year-old was in London on Monday to seal a reported £6.7m transfer on a five-and-a-half-year contract.

They also said the winger would be loaned back for the rest of the season.

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas had insisted the transfer was nothing to do with him and that it was down to "club policy for the future".

He explained: "It's a target that's decided by the club, that I knew about for quite some time.

"In the sense that it's the club policy for the future, it's the right thing [to buy him] and I'll do everything in my power for him to reach maximum potential.

"But it's down to the club in decision-making. I'm a manager who respects club policy.

"A club has to look to the future, whether it's with this manager or another. He's a good bet for the future."

De Bruyne has scored five goals and also made 16 assists last season as Genk were crowned Belgian champions for the third time.

He has played twice against Chelsea this season, appearing for Genk in the 5-0 Champions League group stage defeat at Stamford Bridge and again in the 1-1 draw at the Cristal Arena.

His international debut came in August 2010 in a friendly against Finland.

He will become the third Belgian player signed by Villas-Boas following the arrivals of Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois.
