The midfielder, brother of Eden and Thorgan, will spend the next 10 days with the Dutch outfit as he searches for a new club

Kylian Hazard has moved a step closer to leaving Chelsea after joining Dutch side VVV Venlo on trial.

Hazard, the brother of Eden and Thorgan, joined the Blues in 2017 from Ujpest in Hungary.

However, the midfielder is yet to make a first-team appearance for Chelsea, plying his trade with the club's development side instead.

And it now appears Hazard could be on the way out of Stamford Bridge after Eredivisie outfit VVV Venlo confirmed the news on Friday.

A brief statement on the club's website read : “Kylian Hazard will train at VVV-Venlo for the next ten days. 

“The offensive midfielder, younger brother of the Belgian internationals Eden and Thorgan, will try to convince the technical staff of our club of his qualities over the next ten days.”

Kylian is on course to embark on a similar path to that of his older brother Thorgan, 25, who also failed to make a first-team appearance for Chelsea before moving on.

Thorgan moved to Chelsea in 2012 and was quickly shipped out on loan to Zulte Waregem and Borussia Monchengladbach for a season apiece.

He soon joined Gladbach on a permanent deal in 2015 and his fine form in Germany earned him a place in Belgium's World Cup squad, alongside older sibling Eden.

Eden has established himself as Chelsea's key man in recent seasons but the former Lille star has also been linked with a move away in the future.

The 27-year-old's current contract runs out in 2020 and he has suggested his future at Chelsea depends on who they sign ahead of the 2018/19 campaign .
