Genk winger Kevin De Bruyne reveals that Chelsea are still keen on signing him.

Kevin De Bruyne has claimed that Chelsea have renewed their interest in prising him away from Belgian club Genk.

The Blues tried to sign the 20-year-old during the summer but refused to meet Genk's asking price.

However, De Bruyne believes that Chelsea are still keen on purchasing him, while also admitting that a loan move could tempt him.

"Chelsea are still interested in signing me and have a plan ready for me," De Bruyne told Sporza.

"It would be perfect if they'd sent me out on loan to another team first.

"Something like Thibaut Courtois at Atletico Madrid. He has made the right choice."

De Bruyne has made two appearances for the Belgium national team.
