Chelsea FC did indeed make one move on Transfer Deadline Day, as they sent midfielder Marco Van Ginkel on loan to PSV Eindhoven.

Marco Van Ginkel is one player who is still bizarrely contracted at Stamford Bridge. Since arriving in the summer of 2013, he has made just four competitive appearances for the club and he won’t add to that tally in this campaign as he spends the rest of the season on loan at PSV Eindhoven.

Van Ginkel was under the stewardship of Mark Hughes for the first half of this season. The 23-year-old has played somewhat of a role in an impressive Stoke City campaign thus far, racking up 21 appearances for the Potters. However, given that 10 of these were off the bench, it is plain to see that Van Ginkel was not integral to their plans.

While he has been sent out once again, this loan spell could even be regarded as a step up for the Dutchman. PSV are currently sitting at the top of the Eredivisie while they are also in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Van Ginkel will be hoping that he is able to contribute significantly to PSV’s cause as they push for an unlikely treble in this campaign.

The midfielder was once touted as the next Frank Lampard by his then-Vitesse boss, Peter Bosz. Unfortunately, it has not quite clicked for Van Ginkel as he continues to move around from club to club. Having said that, the fact that top quality outfits are still interested in securing his services (albeit temporarily) means that he should continue to follow his quest to become a top European footballer.

This was Chelsea’s only piece of business on a relatively underwhelming Transfer Deadline Day for Blues fans. After capturing both Alexandre Pato and Matt Miazga, all business was expected to be on the sell side. However, not much developed there anyway.

There was talk that Leicester City may finally land Loic Remy and for most of the day a deal looked likely. It wasn’t to be for the Foxes, though, as they missed out on a chance to bolster their squad ahead of an unfathomable title challenge.

Radamel Falcao was also reportedly in Spain in an attempt to force through a move to Atletico Madrid, but that did not happen either.

Oh well, to the summer we go.
