Hazard to join Chelsea in July

  • Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard is set to join Chelsea after agreeing terms with the Premier League club and passing a medical.

    The 21-year-old, who has been with French club Lille since 2005, will join Chelsea in July.

    Hazard joins the London club ahead of a re-building process following last season's sixth place finish in the Premier League.

    Hazard has been named best Ligue 1 player in the past two seasons and led Lille to the French title last year.
