Chelsea goalkeeper Eduardo to move to Vitesse on loan

Chelsea allow goalkeeper Eduardo to spend the upcoming campaign on loan at Dutch club Vitesse.

Vitesse have agreed to sign Chelsea goalkeeper Eduardo on a season-long loan deal.

Chelsea and Vitesse have a long-standing partnership with the Blues, having sent a number of younger players on loan to the Dutch club in the past.

However, 35-year-old Eduardo will now be given the chance to gain first-team football with the Eredivisie outfit after two years at Stamford Bridge without making an appearance.

Goal.com claims that Eduardo's desire to become a coach in future years could be part of the agreement, with Chelsea agreeing to pay the veteran's wages.

Young English defender Jake Clarke-Salter has already made the switch to Vitesse on a similar deal.
