Chelsea Sign Dutch Starlet

Chelsea Football Club has today announced that it will sign Dutch international midfielder, Marco van Ginkel, subject to a medical.

20-year-old van Ginkel is considered to be one of Europe’s brightest young prospects.

He currently plays for Dutch Eredivisie side Vitesse Arnhem, for whom he has made 93 appearances and scored 18 goals since making his first-team debut in 2010.

In late 2012, he won his fist senior cap for the Netherlands, coming on as a second-half substitute in the Oranje’s 0-0 friendly draw with Germany.

Most recently he was a member of Holland’s Under 21 squad at the European Championships in Israel.

“Chelsea Football Club and Vitesse Arnhem have reached an agreement for the transfer of Marco van Ginkel,” the Blues said on their official website.

“The player will join Chelsea subject to a medical, agreement of personal terms and legal documentation.”

Van Ginkel’s signing is surely intended to boost Chelsea in the future.

It is unclear of Blues boss Jose Mourinho sees him as a first-team member, and he will struggle to usurp the likes of Oscar, Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and others in the starting line-up.

If anything, van Ginkel’s singing reveals that there is some truth in Chelsea’s recent assertions that they intend to develop the stars of the future, rather than exclusively lavish mega sums on established stars, as they have tended to in the recent past.
