New deal for van Aanholt

Chelsea defender Patrick van Aanholt has agreed a new four-year

contract with the Stamford Bridge club. The 20-year-old joined the

Blues from PSV Eindhoven in 2007 and has made eight appearances for

the side, scoring in the Carling Cup third-round defeat to

Newcastle last September. Van Aanholt, a Holland Under-21

international, spent the second half of this season on loan at

Leicester, while he has also had loan spells at Coventry and

Newcastle.
