New Vitesse boss Peter Bosz would welcome another Gael Kakuta loan

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

Did you know that Gael Kakuta is still just 22? Hard to believe; feels like he should be a lot older having been at Chelsea for what seems like forever. Jose Bosingwa had had himself an entire Chelsea career since the Frenchman's controversial transfer. As have Ross Turnbull and Daniel Sturridge, just to name two more at random.

After impressing with the youth team, Kakuta hit the loan circuit in 2010, amassing a few rather unsuccessful stints at Fulham, Bolton, and Dijon. Just when most were ready to give up him, it all suddenly clicked and he found a good fit at Chelsea B Vitesse in the Eredivisie. He grew from strength-to-strength, overcoming a slow start to end with 26 appearances (25 starts) for the season.

In fact, he's impressed enough that even new Vitesse ... boss ... Peter Bosz would welcome him back for another loan:

"He is very welcome. I understand that there is the possibility to hire him again."

-Peter Bosz; translated with Google Translate; source: De Telegraaf

Despite his re-found success, Kakuta still doesn't appear to be in the long-term Chelsea picture. He is under club control until 2015 however, so another loan could prove useful in terms of either taking that next belated step up or simply just fetching a decent price on the transfer market eventually.

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention that the same Telegraaf article has throwaway lines on the two other Chelsea loanees with whom Vitesse are intimately familiar: Patrick van Aanholt (another loan possible) and Tomas Kalas (another loan unlikely due to the arrival of right back Kelvin Leerdam). But Kakuta is the focus and having voluntarily turned up at the Vitesse training grounds, it sounds like he'd prefer that destination over the previously rumored Rayo Vallecano.
