Chelsea striker Joao Rodriguez has signed for Vitesse Arnhem on-loan for the coming season.

The 18 year-old striker will play the next 12 months with the Eredivisie outfit.

Rodriguez was snapped by Chelsea two years ago from Boca Juniors Cali and has spent the past two seasons on-loan with Deportes Quindío and Uniautónoma.

The youngster was impressive for Colombia at this summer's U20 Toulon tournament in France.

Interestingly, Rodriguez is the first Colombian to sign for Chelsea.
