Van Ginkel: Vitesse loanees told me plenty about Chelsea

Chelsea signing Marco van Ginkel admits he knows plenty about the club's culture thanks to his time with Vitesse Arnhem.

The two clubs enjoy a close relationship.

"Yes, I played with Patrick van Aanholt, Tomas Kalas and Gael Kakuta last season. They also helped me. I asked a lot of things about the club and they said that Chelsea is incredible. Now I am here I can see this. I think they will help when I train on Monday also," Van Ginkel told

"I look forward to it a lot. It's not scary, but I will be a little bit nervous maybe! Playing with players like Frank Lampard and John Terry will be a huge thing. I played three years at Vitesse, but the Premier League is very good, and I will enjoy playing with these players with this experience."
