Vitesse Arnhem chief: Van Aanholt can match Chelsea's Cole

Vitesse Arnhem chief Ted van Leeuwen is delighted with their loan deal for Patrick van Aanholt.

The Chelsea left-back joined Vitesse yesterday.

Van Leeuwen revealed: "We've been trying to sign him for 18 months. But he really wanted to pursue his career in England.

"We're very happy to have him here. He's a natural successor for Ashley Cole (at Chelsea)."
