Chelsea have signed Lens teenage
midfielder Thorgan Hazard who joins his older brother Eden at
the European champions, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.
Thorgan, 19, is two years younger than Belgian international
Eden, who signed for Chelsea from Lille last month, and can play
in a similar range of attacking midfield positions.
He joined Lens aged 14 and moved up to the senior squad last
season, making 14 Ligue 1 appearances including his debut as a
substitute in the first match of the campaign.
Thorgan has played for Belgium at several age groups and was
part of the squad for the 2011 European Under-19 Championship.
He will join Chelsea's Under-21 squad for pre-season
training with a loan move being considered so he can continue
his development, the club added on their website.
The Hazards, whose parents were footballers, were both at
Belgian team Tubize and could join a long list of brothers to
play for Chelsea including Ray and Graham Wilkins, Ron and Allan
Harris, John and Peter Sillett and Chris and William Ferguson
