Chelsea defender Fankaty Dabo admits being 'homesick' at Vitesse

Chelsea defender Fankaty Dabo admits he's still to settle at loan club Vitesse Arnhem.

The youngster concedes he does feel homesick, though is determined to make the move work.

He told De Gelderlander: "I have sometimes suffered from homesickness. I miss my family, friends. My dog. They come occasionally to Netherlands. But I just need to see it through.

"I am a professional. Arnhem, Vitesse. That should be my home.

"It's nice here. Everyone speaks English, that's fine. And I'm busy learning Dutch. I practice every day. It's hard, but I'm picking it up slowly."
