Vitesse Arnhem sign Chelsea striker on season-long loan deal


Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke has joined Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan.

The move comes as a surprise as it was thought that the youngster was going to play an important role for the Blues this season.

In fact, boss Jose Mourinho told reporters in May that he wanted to keep the 17-year-old at Stamford Bridge.

"For Solanke to go out on loan to a Championship team, or to another team in England or Europe, would be a big mistake," Mourinho said at the end of last season.

"Staying at Chelsea, training with the first team, having pre-season with the first team, a period as cover to the main strikers, playing every week at U21s and U18's and just go step by step. In a couple of years, a first-team player.

"I think we're doing the right thing."

Solanke is the fifth Chelsea player to join Vitesse this summer after the Dutch side signed Danilo Pantic, Isaiah Brown, Nathan and Lewis Baker.
