Van Aanholt, who is on loan at Vitesse from Chelsea, joins a 22-man Oranje squad after fellow left-backs Martins Indi (muscle) and Willems (knee) left the Noordwijk training camp on Sunday.

A statement published on knvb.nl confirmed Feyenoord's Martins Indi had strained a muscle in training while Willems, of PSV Eindhoven, hurt his knee during Saturday's 2-2 friendly draw with Japan.

Van Aanholt, 23, is currently enjoying a second season on loan with Eredivisie outfit Vitesse, who are the surprise leaders of the Dutch league having taken 24 points from 13 games.

Holland face Colombia at the Amsterdam ArenA on Tuesday night in what is a last international appointment of the year for the 2010 World Cup finalists.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
