Wigan Athletic have this evening confirmed that Patrick van Aanholt will be joining them on a season loan.
In Roberto Martinez’s statement it was clear he was pleased to have got his man, who says will fill a vital position in the squad:
“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.”
This is a great opportunity for Patrick who has been brilliant for the Chelsea Youth side in recent months.
Chelsea4Girls wish him all the best at Wigan and hope that he gets some Premier League hours and experience ahead of his return to the Chelsea first-team next season.
