The young Dutch midfielder was the subject of a lot of transfer speculation and rightly so given his ability. It was Chelsea who secured his services with a host of young Chelsea players making loan moves the other way. It’s a transfer that’s worked out well for Vitesse but not so much for the player.

Van Ginkel made his debut off the bench against Hull followed by another brief appearance against Villa. The Capital One Cup game against Swindon was a good opportunity for the youngster to get a run out but unfortunately the midfielder suffered a cruciate ligament injury early in the game. The initial verdict was that he would be out for a period of 6-7 months, not really an ideal start to life in England for the highly rated youngster.

One can only hope for a speedy recovery for the Dutchman.
