Chelsea full-back Patrick van Aanholt has signed a new four-year deal with The Blues.

The Dutch defender has been out on loan at Championship outfit Leicester City this season, after previous short-term deals at Coventry City and Newcastle United.


The 20-year-old scored his first Chelsea goal in his first start for the club against one of his former clubs, Newcastle, in the Carling Cup in September.

Having joined Chelsea in 2007, Van Aanholt has made just two appearances for the club, the other a substitute appearance last season.
