We had reported almost ten days ago that Chelsea youngster Nathan faced some visa issues regarding a permission to work in the Netherlands ahead of Vitesse's next season. In the report, it said that Nathan would have to wait in Brazil for "up to ten days" until the permission was issued -- and today, we arrive with the good news in that regard.

After [another Chelsea loanee] Danilo Pantic, Nathan Allan de Souza has now received the necessary papers [to work in the Netherlands]. Thus, the winger [can] play immediately and he can join the A-squad. [...] The Brazilian had to return to his home country to apply for the work permit requirement. The procedure was successfully completed which can connect Nathan immediately back to the players.

It also means that Nathan will be available to play in Vitesse's match against Southampton in the Europa League next Thursday, although -- as pointed out by @chelseayouth -- he is unlikely to start as he certainly missed some match training days. All in all, there are no other external obstacles on Nathan's way to make a good impression for Vitesse and Chelsea fans ahead of the 2015-16 season.
