KEVIN DE BRUYNE com­pleted his £8mil­lion move to Chelsea – but ad­mits he could wait 18 months to make his de­but.

The Bel­gian winger switched to Stam­ford Bridge from Genk yes­ter­day. But he’ll be sent back to his for­mer club to see out the rest of the sea­son on loan.

And the 20-year-old ex­pects to be shipped out on yet an­other tem­po­rary deal as he eases his way into English foot­ball.

De Bruyne said: “I signed and now I’ll go back for six months. Next sea­son it would be nor­mal to be loaned, but I will start the prepa­ra­tions here at Cob­ham.”

He added: “I am pa­tient. It will be very hard to play in the be­gin­ning, but if you can train with these guys you will get to a bet­ter level than in the Bel­gian league for sure.

“I’m a creative player with two good feet I think, es­pe­cially the right one. At Genk I cre­ate chances for the team.”
