McEachran set for Vitesse loan

Sky Sports understands Chelsea midfielder Josh McEachran is poised to join Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem on loan.

McEachran is believed to have agreed a deal to join Chelsea's feeder club Vitesse on a season-long loan deal.

The 21-year-old is well down the pecking order at Chelsea and Blues boss Jose Mourinho is happy to send him out on loan again.

McEachran has had four spells out on loan at Swansea, Middlesbrough, Watford and Wigan during the last two-and-a-half seasons after finding his path to the first team at Stamford Bridge blocked.

Chelsea have close links with Vitesse having sent Christian Atsu, Lucas Piazon and Patrick van Aanholt to Holland last season.
