Van Aanholt, who is on loan at Vitesse from Chelsea, joins a 22-man Oranje squad after fellow left-backs Martins Indi (muscle) and Willems (knee) left the Noordwijk training camp on Sunday.

A statement published on knvb.nl confirmed Feyenoord's Martins Indi had strained a muscle in training while Willems, of PSV Eindhoven, hurt his knee during Saturday's 2-2 friendly draw with Japan.

Van Aanholt, 23, is currently enjoying a second season on loan with Eredivisie outfit Vitesse, who are the surprise leaders of the Dutch league having taken 24 points from 13 games.

Holland face Colombia at the Amsterdam ArenA on Tuesday night in what is a last international appointment of the year for the 2010 World Cup finalists.
