In February 2011 Bruma was send on loan to Leicester City until the end of the season. The clubs already agreed a loan deal at the closing of the transfer market, but Chelsea were too late to arrange the necessary papers before the closing.

After three successful seasons in Eindhoven winning the Dutch league twice, Bruma went for another international move. He rejoined the German league signing a 5-year contract at Vfl Wolfsburg. His contract until June 2021 was signed for a transfer fee of 11,5ME. In January 2019 he was send on loan for the rest of the season to Schalke 04.
