Werder Bremen chief Klaus Allofs is delighted with their loan deal for Chelsea winger Kevin de Bruyne.
De Bruyne will spend the 2012/13 season at Bremen after ending last term on loan at Genk from Chelsea.
Bremen have no option to make the move permanent with De Bruyne highly regarded at Stamford Bridge.
"We have Kevin for several months," Allofs told the club's official website. "We are glad that we can increase the quality in our squad with this commitment."
De Bruyne was happy to make the move to Bremen for next season, saying: "It's great the move to Bremen is done.
"Werder has a great tradition, playing in one of the best leagues in Europe with a full stadium and I want, with my new team-mates, successful football."
