Chelsea FC transfer news: Van Ginkel will go to Chelsea, claims agent

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

We've got some bonafide transfer news! Hurray! We knew that Marco van Ginkel was close to a Chelsea move -- the Blues and Vitesse had already agreed a deal and it was down to convincing the player himself that he'd have a future at Stamford Bridge. But now we apparently have confirmation from van Ginkel's agent:

Google translating that gives us the following:

Marco van Ginkel will go to Chelsea, says his agent: "He leaves for Chelsea, he fits in with the first selection."

That sounds like the convincing stage is done. Van Ginkel will help reinforce the midfield, providing additional depth and an extra top-tier prospect as the Blues seek to strengthen in the centre. Expect a deal to be finalised around the time the window officially opens. There's not much more than a medical and some i-dotting and t-crossing to go, assuming these quotes are accurate.
