Chelsea midfielder Josh McEachran is heading to the club's partner side in Holland, Vitesse, on loan.

Vitesse have benefited from a number of players on loan from Chelsea and the Englishman is set to be the latest arrival in Arnhem.

The Dutch club's coach Peter Bosz discussed the 21-year-old's possible signing yesterday and now McEachran has suggested the switch is close.

The midfielder said via his Twitter account: "Off to Holland tomorrow then. Can't wait to get out there."


The Englishman has had numerous loan spells away from Stamford Bridge in a bid to build up his first team experience.


McEachran has spent time at Swansea, Middlesbrough, Watford and Wigan, but will now sample football outside England with Vitesse.

The midfielder is an England Under-21 international and has represented his country on 14 occasions.
