After three years, Eden Hazard will no longer share a permanent club with one of his younger brothers. Chelsea FC announced on Monday that Thorgan Hazard's loan deal with Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach has been made permanent, with the midfielder signing a contract that will tie him to the club until 2020. 

Chelsea purchased Thorgan Hazard from Ligue 1 side Lens shortly after prying his brother Eden away from Lille in 2012. Since that time, the younger Hazard has yet to make an appearance with the Chelsea first team, going on loan to Belgian club Zulte-Waregem (where he won the league's "Player of the Year" award in 2014), and spending this current season with Monchengladbach.

EPL Notes: Liverpool wins despite bad display vs. Southampton

Thorgan has been in good form in Germany this season, scoring four goals and adding eight assists in 29 games with his now-permanent squad. 

However, there is the possibility he could re-join his brother in the EPL should his form continue to improve: Chelsea also announced that its deal with Monchengladbach included a buy-back clause.
