McEachran in Dutch loan

Josh McEachran has today joined Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan.

McEachran, 21, moves to the Eredivisie following Vitesse’s 2-2 draw at home to SC Cambuur on Saturday.

The midfielder joined Chelsea as an eight-year-old and helped our Under-18s win the FA Youth Cup in 2010, making his Chelsea first-team debut soon after, aged just 17, in a Champions League game against Zilina.

McEachran is also a regular for England Under-21s and was part of Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Toulon Tournament in May.

We wish Josh well for his time in the Netherlands and you can keep up with his progress here on the official Chelsea website.
