Marco Van Ginkel has confirmed that Chelsea have offered him a new deal.

The 27-year-old has been out of action since 2018, after anterior cruciate ligament surgery saw his loan spell at PSV come to an end.

The West London club evidently still have plans for Van Ginkel, a fact that the midfielder appreciates.

  • "Apparently they still see something in me"

Speaking to Eindhovens Dagblad, he said, "I am very happy with that sign of confidence from Chelsea.

“It is no small thing that a club tries to keep you in such an uncertain time after such a long injury period. 

"Apparently they still see something in me, although we still have to figure it out."

  • "I follow my previous clubs well"

Van Ginkel started his professional career in the Netherlands with Vitesse Arnhem.

He was brought to Stamford Bridge at the beginning of Jose Mourinho's second spell at the helm and made his debut against Hull City on the opening day of the campaign.

His progress was slowed by an anterior cruciate ligament injury in a league cup game and the following season saw the midfielder loaned out to AC Milan.

After suffering with injury in the first half of this season, the Dutchman became a regular, earning 16 starts and two substitute appearances.

His next loan spell was closer to home, with Stoke City and after making 21 appearances with the ​​​​​​​Premier League ​​​​​​​side before the end of January, Van Ginkel decided to terminate that contract and join PSV on loan for the remainder of the season. 


The following year he signed a contract extension and was loaned back to PSV where he remained until his injury in July 2018.

The 27-year-old remains in contact with PSV and keeps an eye on all of his previous teams.

"I follow my previous clubs well," he continued. 

"No matter what happens, I will always feel at home at PSV.

Time whether Van Ginkel will extend his Chelsea stay and what role he may play in Frank Lampard's squad.
