During his career at Chelsea De Bruyne only made a hand full of appearances having spent the majority of his time on loan to his former club in 2012 and then German side Werder Bremen in 2012-13.

This season De Bruyne made nine appearances supplying one assist and failing to truly impress leaving Jose Mourinho with the decision to allow him to leave.

However, De Bruyne truly never found his feet in London and the club have wished him the best of luck at his new club and thanked him for his service for the Blues.
