Latics Sign Chelsea Defender On Loan

Latics Sign Chelsea Defender On Loan




Wigan Athletic have signed Chelsea defender Patrick Van Aaanholt on a season long.

The youngster is a Dutch under 21 international, he has made 2 first team appearances for Chelsea but made further appearances whilst on loan at Coventry (20 appearances), Newcastle (7) and Leicester (12).

Latics boss Roberto Martinez is very pleased with his acquisition, he says: 'Patrick is a player with enormous potential. Technically he is very gifted, very comfortable in possession and physically, he uses his intensity to defend very effectively.

'He can play left back or left wing back position and without a doubt he's got a phenomenal career ahead of him and I hope he can settle in Wigan really quickly and start enjoying his football as a Latics player.

'We rate Patrick really highly and his professionalism and his personal attributes will be a huge asset to us this season.

'Like Tom Cleverley last year, he is a young player who is hungry to learn his trade and I feel both parties can benefit hugely from the move. We are delighted to welcome him on board.'

He's a great player, likes to bomb down the wings. hopefully this will be the last time we send him out on loan because he has the potential to take Ashley Cole's spot when Ashley's past it
