Chelsea scout, and close football associate of Roman Abramovich, Piet de Visser has revealed to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, that the Blues might be interested in bringing back defender Jeffrey Bruma to Stamford Bridge.
The Dutch international signed for the Blues from Feyenoord in 2009. During his spell with the club, he failed to cement a spot in the squad and spent loan spells at Leicester City and Hamburg. Finally, he sealed a move back to Eredivisie with PSV and since then he has excelled in his time with the Dutch champions.
De Visser said, “I scouted him at the time at Feyenoord for Chelsea. He has a strong body and also a very good football character. At Chelsea, he trained very quickly with the first team, where he fought duels with Didier Drogba and was alongside John Terry. It’s just been such a shame that he, as a young player didn’t have a longer time to play alongside an experienced crack like Terry.”
It is believed that Chelsea have a buyback clause for the player and could move for him in the coming months.
Visser added: “I am convinced that Jeffrey Bruma will return to the Premier League. He has everything you need as a defender in English football. I have no doubt that there is another big English club that is going to come for him. In that respect, he has been a good investment for PSV.”
