Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount: Eredivisie move best thing to happen to me

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount admits he's loved his time with Vitesse Arnhem.

The England youngster concedes he's unsure if he will be returning on-loan next season.

"First finish the playoffs. Then I have the European Championship with England Under-19. And then a new season follows in the summer. I really have no idea where that is," the attacking midfielder told Der Gerlander.

"The Eredivisie is the best thing that happened to me. It is technically well-coached. In this area I have taken steps again this season.

"In professional football, everything revolves around profit and loss. That creates much more emotion than a competition in the academy.

"I always stood out in the youth and reserves of Chelsea. That was automatic. At Vitesse I learned what fighting is. Everyone has to fight for his place. I have learned to live abroad. With a language barrier. Far away from family, friends and my girlfriend."
