Newly-signing midfielder Marco van Ginkel says that he wants to feature in games for Chelsea next season.

Marco van Ginkel has said that he does not want to just sit on the bench at Stamford Bridge.

The midfielder completed his move from Vitesse Arnhem to Chelsea earlier this evening, signing a five-year contract with the club.

The 20-year-old told the team's website: "I want to learn a lot, to develop myself. I want to play games and not only sit on the bench, that's what I hope for, to play in games at these great stadiums and hopefully be important for the team, whether it is from the bench or from the start.

"I think I can play games and I think the Premier League is higher than the Dutch league, so you can learn more physically and technically, and develop. That's why I am here.

"I look forward to it a lot. It's not scary, but I will be a little bit nervous maybe! Playing with players like Frank Lampard and John Terry will be a huge thing. I played three years at Vitesse, but the Premier League is very good, and I will enjoy playing with these players with this experience."

Van Ginkel scored 24 goals in 41 games in all competitions with Vitesse last season.
