Chelsea fullback Van Aanholt: I chose Wigan over Hamburg

Chelsea fullback Patrick van Aanholt admits he chose Wigan Athletic over Hamburg in the summer.

Hamburg wanted Van Aanholt to follow Chelsea teammate Jeffrey Bruma in joining them on-loan.

"For me, such a move has never been an option," he explained. "They have the German international left-back Dennis Aogo. I didn't think I would play often.

"Moreover, I want to succeed in England. I've wanted this for years and will not let this dream go."
