Chelsea left-back Patrick van Aanholt, who has spent the season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, is the sole Premier League representative in the 23-man party heading to Israel in June.

Among the ones to watch in the Dutch squad is highly-rated PSV Eindhoven midfielder Kevin Strootman, who was with the Oranje at Euro 2012 and has reportedly been tracked by Manchester United and a host of other top European clubs.

Left-back Daley Blind, the son of former Holland and Ajax left-back Danny, is also included, while FC Twente's Leroy Fer came close to joining Everton in January only to see the transfer fall through.
