Chelsea are watching Vitesse Arnhem midfielder Kelvin Leerdam.

The 23 year-old has been outstanding for Vitesse this season after leaving his defensive role for a position in midfield.

His form has come to the attention of Chelsea scouts, with the two clubs enjoying a close relationship. Southampton and Newcastle United are also keen.

Chelsea signed Marco van Ginkel from Vitesse last summer.
