Chelsea youngster Wallace joins Vitesse on loan

The right-back has signed a season-long loan deal with the Dutch side and becomes the seventh youngster to join the club from the Blues in the last 12 months
Chelsea right-back Wallace has joined Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan.

The Brazil Under-20 international, who joined the club from Fluminese in 2013, spent last season on loan at Inter but made just three appearances.

The 20-year-old becomes the latest in a long line of Chelsea youngsters to join Vitesse, with Lucas Piazon, Bertrand Traore, Patrick van Aanholt, Christian Atsu, Gael Kakuta and Sam Hutchinson in joining the club in the last 12 months.

“Wallace is a big talent, he fits in our offensive way of playing and provides more options in our midfield and defence,” said Vitesse technical director Mohammed Allach.
