Van Loan from Chelsea

Patrick John Miguel van Aanholt, when I read that name before I went who? I think many other people would have done too. But looking at the 21-year-old who has completed a season long loan move from Chelsea, it has been a very good move.

The left back who has played at all youth levels for Holland is one to watch, and links have already been made with a loan move last year of Tom Cleverly.

Martnez was happy to have signed the full back, who will provide cover for Maynor Figeroua.

Roberto said:

"Technically he is very gifted, very comfortable in possession and physically, he uses his intensity to defend very effectively.

He can play left-back or left wing-back and without a doubt he's got a phenomenal career ahead of him.

We rate Patrick really highly and his professionalism and his personal attributes will be a huge asset to us this season.

Like Tom Cleverley (on loan from Manchester United) last year he is a young player who is hungry to learn his trade and I feel both parties can benefit hugely from the move."
