Chelsea winger Christian Atsu would consider another loan move next season if it guarantees him first-team football.

As reported by, the 22-year-old Ghana international would be open to staying at Vitesse for another 12 months after a successful stint in the Eredivisie.

Atsu has been a crucial player for Vitesse this season, and while their title challenge has faded over the second half of the campaign, Atsu was still named the club's player of the season for his efforts.

And speaking to Voetbal International in Holland, Atsu confirmed he wants to be playing regular football next season - although he's not sure what Chelsea have planned for him.

"It all depends on Chelsea," Atsu said. "If they say that I have to stay in London, then why not? Here, I get the chance to develop myself and at Vitesse we play an attacking system.

"Suppose I move to a bigger club and am placed on the bench or I move to a team that plays counter-attacking football, that would leave me feeling like I am going to the office and taking a nap on my desk."

Atsu is one of four Chelsea players currently on loan at Vitesse. Patrick van Aanholt, Bertrand Traore, Lucas Piazon and Atsu are the four players, while other Chelsea youngsters like Gael Kakuta have also spent time there as well.

Atsu joined the Dutch club last summer without playing a competitive match for Chelsea. He's since made 24 league appearances for Vitesse this season.
