Marco van Ginkel: Closing on switch to Stamford Bridge

The 20-year-old will move to Stamford Bridge subject to a medical, and the agreement of personal terms.

The midfielder scored eight league goals last season as the Arnhem club finished fourth in the Eredivisie, their highest position for 15 years, and he was also voted the Dutch young player of the year.

He made his senior debut with the Netherlands national team against Germany in November last year, coming on as a late substitute in their 0-0 friendly in Amsterdam.

A statement on Chelsea's website read: "Chelsea Football Club and Vitesse Arnhem have reached an agreement for the transfer of Marco van Ginkel.

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

He would become Jose Mourinho's second summer signing following the arrival of Andre Schurrle from Bayer Leverkusen.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
