CHELSEA AGREES TO SIGN VAN GINKEL FROM VITESSE…
Chelsea have agreed a deal with Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem for their midfielder Marco van Ginkel.
Ginkel, who is reportedly valued at about £8m was a regular for the Dutch club last season and emerged as one of the team’s star performers as Vitesse secured fourth place in the Eredevise.
He joined Vitesse’s academy as a seven-year-old in 1999 and came through the ranks before making his first-team debut in April 2010.
The 20-year-old Dutch international is due to become Jose Mourinho’s second signing of the summer after the arrival of Germany forward Andre Schurrle.
The Blues added in a statement: “The player will join Chelsea subject to a medical, agreement of personal terms and legal documentations.”
The midfielder made his international debut against Germany last November and was included in the Netherland’s Under-21 squad for the recent European Championship in Israel. Giztzzz… madetv!
