Sam Hutchinson: The Chelsea full-back has joined Vitesse Arnhem on loan

The 24-year-old spent last season with Championship side Nottingham Forest, although a knee injury restricted him to featuring just nine times during his spell at the City Ground.

Since making his debut in 2007, Hutchinson has only managed six appearances for Chelsea, having initially retired from football due to injury in 2010, before making a U-turn and re-joining the Blues the following year.

He becomes the sixth loanee to leave Stamford Bridge for Vitesse this summer, following Patrick Van Aanholt, Gael Kakuta, Christian Cuevas, Lucas Piazon and recent arrival from FC Porto, Christian Atsu.

The strong relationship between the two clubs, which has seen a number of players shipped to the Eredivisie side in recent years to gain experience, bore fruit for Chelsea during this transfer window as they captured midfielder Marco van Ginkel.

Everton youngster Francisco Junior has also joined Vitesse on loan as they look to build on last season's fourth-placed finish.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have also confirmed that Mexican attacker Ulises Davila has joined Spanish second division side Cordoba on loan for the season.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
