Deal confirmed as Chelsea announce Dutchman has made summer move

Stoke City have signed Chelsea’s Dutch midfielder Marco van Ginkel on a season-long loan, reveals the Sky Sports website.

The 22-year-old, who made 17 appearances last season on loan with AC Milan, becomes Stoke’s fourth signing of the summer and will join up with his team-mates in Singapore ahead of next week’s Asia Trophy.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes was delighted with the signing, telling the club’s website: ‘Marco is the kind of player we have been looking to bring to the Club.

“He will bring great energy to the side and is capable of scoring goals from midfield.’ © 2017 Frontier Theme
