Jeffrey Bruma's agent has confirmed the Chelsea defender is set to join Hamburg on loan.
Former Chelsea sporting director Frank Arnesen had lined up a deal for Bruma after taking up a similar role at Hamburg earlier this summer.
The German giants have agreed a deal to sign Bruma on loan for the next two seasons with Chelsea having the option to recall him in the summer of 2012.
Bruma's agent, Wessel Weezenberg, believes the move is right for the Dutchman as he searches for regular first-team football.
'It is important Jeffrey gets playing. For him this is a good step," Weezenberg Voetbal International.
"We have chosen stability for Jeffrey. These two years Jeffrey has to play and he can settle in this way.
"At Chelsea that will be difficult, but in Hamburg the chance is bigger. However, he will have to prove it by himself.
"For him it is a good step. Hamburg is and remains a top team, with a fantastic stadium and a giant fanbase."
Weezenberg insists Hamburg held a long-term interest in Bruma before the arrival of Arnesen.
When asked if Arnesen was a big admirer of Bruma, Weezenberg said: "That is right. But Hamburg followed Jeff for years before Arnesen came to work here.
"The signing of Bruma is based on the impressions of many people at HSV."
