Werder Bremen general manager Thomas Eichin says that the club want Chelsea's Kevin de Bruyne to return to the club.

Werder Bremen general manager Thomas Eichin has revealed that the club want to take Kevin de Bruyne from Chelsea if the midfielder continues to play a bit-part role at the club.

The 22-year-old, who spent a loan stint at the German club last season, has started in just two league matches this season and was left out of the Champions League squad that went on to beat Steaua Bucuresti 4-0.

Manager Jose Mourinho also stated in a press conference this week that he was unhappy with De Bruyne's effort in training.

"Should Kevin be unhappy, we are an eager first contact," Sky Sports News quotes Eichin as saying. "I'm in contact with his agent and I'm informed about Kevin's situation at Chelsea.

"I know Kevin, if he doesn't play, it is certainly a big problem for him. Let's wait and see what happens in the winter. We will be ready if there's a possibility to get him."

The Belgian signed for Chelsea from Genk last year.
