Van Aanholt keen for Chelsea chance

Patrick Van AanholtPatrick van Aanholt says he would love to be given a chance to play for Chelsea but will go out on loan once again if necessary.

The Netherlands Under-21 star joined the Blues back in 2009 but has made only two Premier League appearances for the west London outfit.

He has spent time on loan with five different clubs in the past four years, with spells at Coventry City, Newcastle United, Leicester City and Wigan Athletic before arriving at the GelreDome in January 2012.

The 22-year-old re-signed for Vitesse for the entire 2012-13 campaign last summer and has enjoyed an excellent season, with 35 appearances this term.

Ashley Cole and Ryan Bertrand are currently Chelsea’s top two left-back options and so the defender might have to bide his time for a while longer before showing the Stamford Bridge faithful what he can do, and he remains philosophical about his future.

“I move on with a good feeling,” he told NuSport. “I have had a good season and just have to wait and see. A new coach, new chances.

“I have to be there on July 1 and then we have to wait. It depends whether the new coach believes in my qualities.

“If that doesn’t work out, I will go out on loan again.”
