Bertrand Traore: Back with Vitesse

Bertrand Traore: Back with Vitesse

The 18-year-old Burkina Faso international joined Chelsea in 2013, but was not able to officially put pen-to-paper until January 1 this year, and within 24 hours he had joined Vitesse.

He played more than a dozen games for Vitesse and will return to the Gelredome for next season.

Technical manager Mo Alllach told the Vitesse website: 'We are delighted Bertrand will join us again. He knows our way of working and our kind of style, also he impressed us with his personality."

The Traore deal is just the latest deal between Vitesse and Chelsea, who have an ongoing relationship over players, with Brazilian defender Wallace also heading to the club for next season.

Patrick van Aanholt, Lucas Piazon and Christian Atsu all spent last season on loan at Vitesse, but they will not be heading back.

The two clubs have also announced that they will be playing a friendly in Holland on July 30.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
