The 22-year-old has so far failed to make a significant first-team breakthrough in west London, making only two senior appearances for the Premier League club.
Van Aanholt has spent the majority of his Chelsea career out on loan, taking in spells at no fewer than five different clubs around Europe.
Now, the Holland U21 international is coming to the end of a stint back in his homeland, with Eredivisie outfit Vitesse Arnhem, alongside fellow Blues loanees Gael Kakuta and Tomas Kalas.
And, having made 35 league appearances for Vitesse in 2012/13, Van Aanholt now feels he is ready for a chance to prove himself in the Premier League, but accepts if the opportunity isn't forthcoming he'll settle for another temporary spell away from Chelsea.
"I move on with a good feeling," he told NuSport. "I have had a good season and just have to wait and see. A new coach, new chances.
"I have to be there on July 1 and then we have to wait. It depends whether the new coach believes in my qualities.
"If that doesn't work out, I will go out on loan again."
Ashley Cole and Ryan Bertrand are currently Chelsea's top two left-back options, so Van Aanholt might be forced to continue waiting patiently for his chance to prove himself in the first-team.
