Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda has joined Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan deal according to reports by The Blues’ official website.

The 22-year-old Brussels-born wideman has represented The Blues on just seven occasions in the six years since signing professional terms at Stamford Bridge.

Musonda joined Dutch outfit Vitesse on a season-long loan deal last August. The player made just one appearance for Vitas before injury ended his campaign.

It has now been reported that Musonda has re-joined Vitesse on a second season-long loan deal. The former Belgian youth international will again work under Leonid Slutsky, a close friend of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich during his time at the GelreDome.

Musonda joined Chelsea’s academy in 2012 and won the FA Youth Cup twice as well as the Professional Development League and UEFA Youth League with The Blues. The player was loaned to Spanish club Real Betis for two spells which ended prematurely with the Belgian frozen out of the side.

In January 2018, the youngster joined Celtic on an 18-month loan arrangement but that deal was again cut short due to a lack of playing opportunities.

With Musonda having returned to fitness following last season’s injury, the player must now finally look to get his career off the ground in Arnhem, a city which has been trialed and tested by so many Chelsea youngsters in recent years.
