Chelsea Signs Eden Hazard’s Younger Brother From France’s Lens

Don't Miss Out —

July 25 (Bloomberg) -- Thorgan Hazard will join his elder brother Eden at Chelsea after the European soccer champion signed him from Lens for an undisclosed fee.

Hazard will join Chelsea’s under-21 squad and may be loaned out immediately to continue his development, the Premier League club said in a statement on its website late yesterday.

The 19-year-old, who plays a similar range of attacking positions to his brother, made 14 league appearances for Lens in the 2011-12 campaign after making his debut as a substitute in the first match of the season. He represented Belgium at the 2011 European Under-19 Championship.

Eden Hazard, a two-time Player of the Year in France’s Ligue 1, joined the Blues last month from Lille for a fee that U.K. newspapers said was about 40 million euros ($48.3 million).
