Nathan only became a Chelsea player in May after agreeing a switch from Atletico Paranaense but does not meet the sufficient criteria to earn a work permit in England.
Brown and will join his fellow England youth international Lewis Baker, who has already agreed a move to Vitesse and both are highly rated by Jose Mourinho.
The former made his debut for Chelsea towards the end of the last campaign and has been tipped by the Special One to become a senior England international in the future.
Begovic deal imminent
Van Ginkel's move to Stoke City is widely expected to be part of a deal that will soon see Asmir Begovic join Chelsea.
The Bosnian goalkeeper is closing in on an £8 million transfer, according to reports, and has been designated as a replacement for Petr Cech.
Stoke demanded a player in return for Begovic and have been granted the services of a promising Dutch midfielder look to revive his career.
He was expected to make his breakthrough whilst on loan to AC Milan last season, but a serious knee injury halted his progress.
These deals cap what has been a very busy day for Chelsea's young hopefuls with the club announcing a the permanent departure of McEachran to Brentford while Andreas Christensen joined Borussia Monchengladbach on loan.
The 19-year-old also agreed a five-year contract with Chelsea before sealing what is believed to be a two-year agreement with the Bundesliga club.
