Vitesse Arnhem confirm Christian Atsu loan, shirt number

Valerio Pennicino

The Blues attacker will wear number 19 in the Eredivisie this season

We already knew that Christian Atsu would be spending the season in the Netherlands, and today the Arnhem side made it official. They also released his squad number for those of you with interest:

Vitesse hires Christian Atsu for a season of Chelsea FC. The 21-year-old Ghanaian international was this summer by Chelsea FC acquired from FC Porto.

The attacker is at Vitesse play with number 19.

There you have it, Atsu will wear the number 19 kit at Vitesse. If you've actually found a place online to order a Vitesse kit*, the 19 would seem to be a good one for a Chelsea fan to order.

*This is actually a lot harder than you would think, get with the times guys...

Vitesse's next game is September 14 against ADO Den Haag, and I'd expect Atsu to be available for that one. Given the struggles they've had to score goals this season, I'd be surprised if he isn't a regular starter soon. Best of luck, we'll be watching.
