English Premier League side Chelsea FC has tied Dutchman Marco van Ginkel to a new one-year deal.
In a statement, Chelsea said Ginkel whose contract was to expire in the summer will be with the club for another year in what will be his eighth seasons with the London club.
“The 27-year-old’s previous contract expires this summer but his new deal takes his Chelsea career into its eighth season, although loan spells and injury have limited his appearances in our shirt,” part of a statement in Chelseá website noted.
The midfielder joined The Blues from Vitesse in 2013 and made a promising start, playing four games in quick succession until a cruciate injury in his second month halted his progress.
He was to spend the next season on loan at AC Milan but returned to England the next season where Stoke City acquired his services on a loan deal before a mid-season switch to his homeland and PSV Eindhoven.
He was to help PSV to the Eredivisie title that season with the player being a major contributor where he scored eight goals in 16 appearances; a form that earned him a recall to the Dutch international side after a four-year gap.
He remained at PSV and helped them to a second Dutch title in 2018 but underwent knee surgery in July 2018 and is yet to make his playing return.
