Arnesen, -Bruma-portraitChelsea defender Jeffrey Bruma will likely return to Holland this summer amid reports that he is already in negotiations with PSV Eindhoven.

Bruma, 21, moved to Stamford Bridge from Feyenoord back in 2005, but has failed to make an impact at the club and has spent the last two seasons out on loan at Bundesliga outfit Hamburg SV.

He’s likely to leave Chelsea on a permanent basis this time around but it’s unlikely that Hamburg will seek his signature as Frank Arnesen, the man that brought him to the club, was sacked as the German club’s sporting director last week because he failed to help improve their fortunes despite significant backing in the transfer market.

Jan de Visser, Bruma’s agent, confirmed that Bruma has met with officials as PSV:

“It was a first meeting. We will listen to each other. I expect there are other sides interested but we are curious about the plans for next season.”

The fee would probably be a low one as Bruma is entering the final year of his contract with Chelsea and is out-of-favour/surplus to requirements.

It’s a pity that Bruma hasn’t managed to make his mark at Stamford Bridge but he’s still young and will be keen to impress PSV boss Phillip Cocu, who intends to develop young players, should he move to the Eredivisie club this summer. The best of luck to him in the future.

Bruma made 18 appearances and scored one goal for Hamburger SV in the 2012-2013 season. He only managed to feature in nine matches for Chelsea, making his Premier League debut in the 5-0 over Blackburn in 2009 and made his first start in the league against Aston Villa in a 3-3 draw in 2011. Despite failing to hold down regular football so far during his fledgling career he has represented his country at all levels, including four senior caps with the Netherlands.
