Patrick van Aanholt returns from loan

According to the official website, Wigan and Chelsea have both agreed to end the season long loan immediately. No immediate plans for van Aanholt have been announced, but I'd imagine the idea is to send him back out on loan to a club that will actually utilize his talents. The first half of this season can really go down as nothing but a waste for van Aanholt. He was generally playing very well in his four appearances at Wigan before suddenly being dropped from the regular 18 man squad.

Where van Aanholt goes for the remainder of the season is yet unknown, but I'd probably be looking for either a Championship side or one in a league on the mainland. He definitely did not benefit from his time at Wigan, and it would be a real shame to see the 2011/2012 season become a total waste. I'd not expect to see PvA feature on his return to Chelsea, as official matches for two clubs would make him ineligible to play again on loan this season. Welcome back PvA, sorry that we sent you to rot in Wigan for the first half...
