Chelsea news: Ake goes out on loan

Chelsea news: Ake goes out on loan

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is sending young Dutchman Nathan Ake to Holland to sign for Vitesse Arnhem on loan for the season.

Versatile Ake was in the Stamford Bridge squad for much of the last campaign but he is going home to play every week.

Ake - signed as a kid from Feyenoord - will get his chance to develop for a year before returning to Chelsea where he is considered a future star.

The 18-year-old is seen as a defensive midfield sitter and will get the opportunity to work at that role in Holland rather than straight into the side in England.

Ake was also wanted by several teams in the Premier League, but Chelsea have let him go to Holland as part of the Marco van Ginkel deal.
