Jose Mourinho told reporters back in April that it would be a mistake to allow Dominic Solanke to leave Chelsea on loan this season - but a temporary move to Vitesse Arnhem was eventually arranged in August nevertheless.
And on the evidence of this latest clip, in which the highly-rated forward produces a stunning piece of skill, Solanke is clearly enjoying his football in the Netherlands.

The 18-year-old ran into the channel and moved towards the touchline before, with his back turned to the defender, spinning and taking two lightning-quick touches to leave his opponent with twisted blood.
Unfortunately, Solanke’s spellbinding turn didn’t lead to a goal - it would have made the move even more spectacular had it done so - as Vitesse drew 0-0 with Heerenveen in the Eredivisie.

Solanke has bright future ahead of him
Solanke, who scored goals for fun with Chelsea’s youth teams before making his senior debut last year, has netted one goal in five league appearances for Vitesse at the start of this season.
But, in order to force his way into Mourinho’s thinking for next season, the starlet’s goals-to-games ratio will need to improve before his loan spell comes to an end.
Back in July 2014 - per the Mirror - Mourinho said he would be the man to blame if Solanke was not playing for the England national team in a few years time.
Currently an England Under-19 international, Mourinho will be desperate for Solanke to continue impressing on loan at Vitesse before returning to Stamford Bridge next summer.
