'I am done here!' - van Aanholt to leave Chelsea

Patrick van Aanholt has declared that his career will not be continuing at Chelsea next season.

The 23-year old Dutch defender has had five loan spells since his promotion to the Blues' senior ranks in 2009 and now feels it is time to up and leave Stamford Bridge.

Van Aanholt, who has made just eight appearances for Chelsea, admits he doesn't know where his future lies but says it will certainly be away from west London.

"Where will I play next season? I don't know yet," he told Voetbal International.

"It definitely won't be at Chelsea. I am done here."

The two-time Dutch international has had loans with Coventry City, Newcastle United, Leicester City, Wigan Athletic and Vitesse Arnhem.

His most recent loan was for two-and-a-half years with Vitesse where he made 87 appearances in all competitions.
