hazard aHazard has been on loan with Belgian side Zulte Waregem for the last two seasons, and has so far scored 11 goals in all competitions this campaign.

The 20-year-old who is the younger brother of fellow Chelsea star Eden Hazard is set to return to London this January, but coach Jose Mourinho hopes to loan him out to another club.

PSV Eindhoven were impressed with the Belgian when they faced Zulte Waregem in the Champions League, and may need an extra midfielder should Ola Toivonen leave.

However PSV director Marcel Brands told Voetbal International that an approach for Hazard was rebuffed, with the player hoping to remain in Belgium.

Brands said, “He wants to stay in Belgium. So is he not attainable.”

It is now likely that Hazard will sign for Belgian champions Anderlecht, who are very keen to sign the highly rated youngster.
