Kevin De Bruyne is set to have a medical at Chelsea today ahead of his proposed move from Genk.

The 20-year-old midfielder is on the brink of completing his £6.7million move to Stamford Bridge.

Any deal would see him loaned back to his current team until the end of the season.

Speaking about the young Belgian star on Friday, Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas admitted De Bruyne had been a long term target for the club.

Villas-Boas said: “It’s a target that’s decided by the club, that I knew about for quite some time.

“He was under the scrutiny of the club for some time, we’ve been following this player.

“Romelu and Lukaku (were) the same, and Petr Cech was the same when we arrived in 2004.

“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.”
