Marco van Ginkel arrives in the Premier League as the latest in a long line of Dutch youngsters to earn a high-profile transfer having initially made their name in the Eredivisie.

The 20-year-old midfielder has completed a transfer to Chelsea after an impressive season with Vitesse, and is unlikely to be the only player from his country to leave the Netherlands before the transfer deadline.

Kevin Strootman of PSV Eindhoven could also leave his homeland for pastures new during the transfer window, as prominent European clubs look to the Dutch league for bargain buys.
