PSV keen to keep hold of Van Ginkel

PSV Eindhoven would like to extend Chelsea midfielder Marco van Ginkel’s stay at the third-placed Eredivisie club.

Van Ginkel has been on loan with the Dutch giants for the last two seasons, and his stay in the Dutch top-flight looks set to continue.

“We are keen to keep Marco at the club,” PSV sporting director Marcel Brands told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

“Both a loan deal or a permanent move could be an option,” said Brands.

Van Ginkel arrived at Stamford Bridge to much fanfare as a 21-year-old back in 2013, but failed to make the grade at the London club.

He made just two appearances in his first season with the Blues before a serious injury ruled him out for the rest of the campaign.

He has since spent the last four seasons bouncing around Europe, first with AC Milan, Stoke City, and now PSV.

“We tried to bring him in on an 18-month loan deal in January, but Chelsea told us they wanted to re-evaluate his situation during the summer,” said Brands.

Brands added that Oleksandr Zinchenko, on loan from Manchester City, could return to England after the 20-year-old Ukraine international struggled for game time in the Netherlands.

“We have yet to make a final decision on Oleksandr,” said Brands.

“But if we are unable to offer him more game time that this season, we might be better off giving his place in the squad to one of our own youngsters,” he said.

Zinchenko has made just 11 appearances this season, starting just four games.
