Loan Star: United Snap Up Chelsea Starlet

Written by Newcastle Utd

van Aanholt joins Magpies on one-month deal

By Craig Hope

NEWCASTLE United have moved to snap up promising Chelsea youngster Patrick van Aanholt on a one-month loan deal.

The 19-year-old, like fellow loan arrival Fitz Hall, was on Tyneside on Friday morning and could make his debut at Leicester City this weekend.

The Dutch left-back spent the first half of this season at Coventry City and was part of The Sky Blues side which was beaten 2-0 by United in December.

Van Aanholt impressed on that night at the Ricoh Arena and, with 21 appearances, was a regular for Chris Coleman's men.

The 's-Hertogenbosch-born star, who signed for Chelsea from PSV Eindhoven in 2008, joins Holland Under-21 team-mate Tim Krul at St.James' Park.

He will wear the No.14 jersey for The Magpies.
