Eden Hazard’s talented brother Kylian Hazard has signed for Hungarian side Ujpest FC.
The 19-year-old midfielder, who signed for a Belgian side Zulte Waregem last season, was transferred from another Belgian side White Star Bruxelles. He has now penned a three-year deal with Ujpest FC, moving out of Belgium.
Veteran Belgian football journalist tweeted on Saturday that Hazard had signed for the Hungarian side.
Kylian Hazard (3rd brother) has left Zulte Waregem (where he hardly played) and moved to Ujpest in Hungary – owner is Duchatelet’s son.

Kylian Hazard, a graduate from Lille Academy, started his professional career at White Star Bruxelles in 2013, playing in the Belgian Second Division for a year, making just 6 appearances. On 25th June 2014, Kylian joined Belgian Pro League side Zulte Waregem on a 2-year deal.
However, after making only one start and one substitute appearance last season, Hazard decided to sign for the Hungarian side, anticipating more starts and to feature on a regular basis.
Ujpest FC, said in a statement on Saturday:
“The contract is a result of a long visit which the player and his father, who represents his son’s interests and monitors his career, paid to Budapest.”
Kylian is the third of the four Hazard brothers. Eden is obviously a world star at Chelsea, while the second brother Thorgan Hazard signed for Chelsea in 2012, before being loaned out to Zulte Waregem and then Borussia Monchengladbach. He is now in a 5 year deal with Monchengladbach, but Chelsea have an option to buy him back.
So, we shall not be surprised if the footballing world is dominated by “Hazards” in the near future!
