Hamburg Sign Another Chelsea Player on Loan
Chelsea have announced they have loaned out defender Jeffrey Bruma to Hamburg for the 2011-12 season.
An official statement on Chelsea’s official website read, “Jeffrey Bruma has today (Thursday June 30) signed on loan with Hamburg on a one-year loan deal.”
Bruma joined Chelsea’s youth set-up from Feyenoord as a 15-year-old in 2007. He made his first-team debut in late 2009 and has since made nine appearances for the club. Bruma, who joins Hamburg on a season-long switch, with the option for one more year, made two league appearances for the Blues when the club was facing a defensive crisis. The player then spent three months on loan at Leicester City last campaign, making 11 appearances for Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side.
“Hamburg is the best option for me,” Bruma told Hamburg’s official website.
“Here, I can play at the highest level in Germany.”
