Chelsea's Gael Kakuta has joined Eredivisie side Vitesse on a season-long loan deal.

Kakuta joined Chelsea in 2007 from Lens, but has made only 16 first-team appearances for the Blues since his arrival.

The 21-year-old has spent time on loan at Fulham, Bolton and Dijon, and he becomes the third Chelsea player to move to Vitesse on loan, joining Tomas Kalas and Patrick van Aanholt.
