Chelsea starlet Thorgan Hazard still dreams of winning a role in the first team at Stamford Bridge but admits he may need a move away to get the stability he feels his career needs.
Hazard, younger brother of current Blues star Eden, joined Borussia Monchengladbach on a season-long loan last summer.
Following a very successful spell back in his homeland with Zulte Waregem last season, the 21-year-old has impressed in Germany with Monchengladbach, who are eager to extend his stay at the club beyond the current campaign.
While Hazard still harbours a desire to link up with his older brother for Jose Mourinho's side, he admits an extended stay in the Bundesliga is likely to be more beneficial for his career.
"Negotiations are underway," Hazard told Belgian daily Het Nieuwsblad. "I feel good at Gladbach and I need stability, which is not always the case in loan agreements. I have no desire to move to a new team and a new country.
"I still dream of playing with Eden in the same team. My father is always in touch with Jose Mourinho and I heard that he appreciates me."
Hazard has grown into his role at Monchengladbach as the season has progressed and boasts a healthy return of four goals and seven assists this season.
Talks over an extended deal for the Belgian youngster have been ongoing since the end of 2014, when Monchengladbach's sporting director Max Eberl confirmed his club's intentions.
"I've had a nice talk with Chelsea," Eberl told Kicker. "Thorgan is a good kid and he does very well. We are going to see what is possible."
Hazard is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Blues since his arrival from RC Lens in 2012.
