Josh McEchran set for long-term Vitesse stay?

Having made just one start and six appearances altogether in the first half of the season, it looked like 2014-15 would be another wasted season in the decreasingly promising career of Josh McEachran.  But he's up to 17 appearances now, including six starts in seven games for the club vying for the final European spot in the Eredevisie.

Playing mostly as a deep-lying playmaker, McEachran is starting to once again show flashes of quality that made him a 17-year-old Champions League debutant under Carlo Ancelotti.  He has unseated Marko Vejinović in center midfield, which is perhaps doubly unexpected given that Vejinović is on a permanent, multi-year contract and McEachran is not.

Unless...

That sure sounds like Peter Bosz plans on having McEachran around again next season, no?  The Vitesse manager already admitted that Bertrand Traoré is unlikely to stay longer.  Meanwhile, Wallace has his eyes on Benfica, apparently.  But McEachran might just make it two years (or perhaps even longer) in the Netherlands.
