Gael Kakuta: Keen to stay at Vitesse Arnhem beyond the summer

Kakuta has spent this season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem in Holland and has previously had temporary spells with Fulham, Bolton and Dijon.

He made the move to Stamford Bridge from Lens as a highly-rated teenager in 2007 and was tipped for a bright future with the Blues, but he says he now has more realistic ambitions.

The 21-year-old believes the size of the Chelsea squad makes it difficult for young players to break into the first team and he is keen to stay at Vitesse next term.

He said in The Sun: "I don't dream about Chelsea anymore - I used to, now I know better.

"I hope I can join a club like Vitesse next season, where I can play every week.

"Chelsea have far too many players. At my age I need to play regularly but if I go back I'll just get 10 minutes a month and I don't want that."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
