Chelsea and Vitesse Arnhem have reached an agreement over the transfer of midfielder Marco van Ginkel to the English Premier League club.

The 20-year-old Dutch player will move to Stamford Bridge subject to a medical, agreement of personal terms and legal documentation, the Blues said in a statement on Thursday.

Van Ginkel scored eight goals for Vitesse last season in the Eredivisie and has been tipped by many as a future star of the national team.
