Chelsea's Marco van Ginkel joins PSV Eindhoven on six-month loan

Published Add your comment

Chelsea midfielder Marco van Ginkel has joined PSV Eindhoven on loan until the end of the season, according to Sky Sports.

The 23-year-old spent the first half of the 2015/16 campaign at Stoke City, where he featured 21 times in all competitions but only made nine starts.

It appears Potters manager Mark Hughes decided to cut his year-long loan spell short, though, after landing record-signing Giannelli Imbula from FC Porto for £18.3 million.

Van Ginkel signed for the Blues in 2013 after impressive displays for Vitesse Arnhem, which attracted interest from several heavyweights across Europe.

In 2014, Chelsea opted to send Van Ginkel out on loan to AC Milan after the arrival of Nemanja Matic from Benfica in January. He failed to impress and soon returned to west London.

The midfielder now appears desperate to prove his worth after a series of loan spells across Europe, and might decide his future lies away from the Premier League champions amidst a struggle to establish himself.
