Chelsea youngster makes Vitesse loan move

Vitesse have exercised their partnership with Premier League champions Chelsea by acquiring right-back Fankaty Dabo on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old is capable of fulfilling various roles in defence, having featured at centre-back and left-back in the Blues academy.

His experience of winning the U21 Premier League and FA Youth Cup, along with 15 loan appearances for League One side Swindon Town convinced Vitas boss Henk Fraser the youngster will be able to contribute to their Eredivisie and Europa League campaigns.
