LONDON:Chelsea announced on Monday they have loaned their England Under-21 midfielder Josh McEachran to Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem until the end of the 2014-15 season.
The 21-year-old made his Chelsea debut at the age of just 17, but he has been successively loaned out in recent seasons, spending time at Swansea City, Middlesbrough, Watford and Wigan Athletic.
“Josh McEachran has today joined Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan,” read a statement from Chelsea. “We wish Josh well for his time in the Netherlands.”
McEachran is the 14th Chelsea player to be loaned out this season and follows club-mates Wallace and Bertrand Traore to Vitesse, with whom Chelsea has a strategic partnership.
