Thorgan Hazard: Has joined Zulte Waregem

The 19-year-old followed his brother Eden to Stamford Bridge in the summer when he signed from French side Lens.

But rather than spending the season with their development squad, they have opted to send him on loan to gain first-team experience with Zulte.

"Zulte Waregem is a club that gives young players opportunities under the wings of experienced players. There is a good mix here," said Hazard after completing his move.

"They give opportunities to the youth and that was the deciding factor."
