Patrick van Aanholt believes playing in the Eredivisie again this season will enhance his chances of making the Holland squad for the World Cup.

Van Aanholt has agreed another loan deal with Vitesse Arnhem, where he spent last season and the second half of the 2011/12 campaign, after finding opportunities at Chelsea hard to come by.

The 22-year-old left-back is hoping playing closer to home will keep him in the thoughts of Oranje coach Louis van Gaal.

He told AD: "I want to go to the World Cup, that's why I did not consider going to an English club.

"At Vitesse it will be better for my image with the coach (Van Gaal).

"I don't know what my standing is with him but it is clear that if you perform you are rewarded with a chance."
