Marco van Ginkel has penned a new one-year deal with the Chelsea, the club have officially announced.
Van Ginkel joined us in 2013 from Vitesse and was hailed as one of the most brightest talents to come out of the Dutch League in recent years, but he has managed just four first-team appearances in seven years with the west London club.
Since joining the club, he has been shipped out on loan to Milan, Stoke and PSV, but that has not mattered and he has managed to secure a shock one-year deal with the us.
Congratulations, Marco! ✍️

He told Dutch publication AD : “My agent, Karel Jansen, is in talks with Chelsea about a new contract for me. I am very happy at this show of confidence in me by the club.
“It is quite something when a club tries to keep a player who has been out injured so long and in these uncertain times as well.
“If a deal can be done I expect to make my comeback in Chelsea’s Under-23 side.
“The prospects look very good. I have worked really hard to come back. I can now train four to five times a week. I was on the point of re-joining group training in March before the coronavirus outbreak.”
