Dutch midfielder leaves Chelsea for free after just four appearances in eight years

Chelsea has confirmed the departure of Dutch International midfielder Marco Van Ginkel for free after failing to reach an agreement on a new contract.

The midfielder joined Chelsea in 2013 for around £8million under Jose Mourinho second spell and was rated amongst the hottest prospects at the London Club.

But unfortunately van Ginkel was hit with series of severe injuries which stunted his progress as a footballer and has also forced him to go out on multiple loans during the eight years he spent at the club.

Marco made just four appearances for the Blues during his eight years stay at the club.

The midfielder joined PSV on loan last October following a frustrating two years of rehabilitation for his knee injury.

Despite the lengthy absence, he actually signed a contract extension last summer prior to his loan move.

The 28-year-old will be released by Chelsea alongside the likes of Jamal Blackman, Willy Caballero, Izzy Brown, Declan Frith, Danilo Pantic and Jack Wakely.

Asides Willy Caballero, who is a first team squad member on this list, the rest are fringe players who gets sent on series of loan while at Chelsea.
