Marco van Ginkel has joined Chelsea from Dutch team Vitesse Arnhem.
He is a 20-year-old midfielder who has played for the Netherlands national team. In the Dutch league last season, he scored 11 goals to help Vitesse finish fourth.
Van Ginkel will meet his new team-mates next week when pre-season training starts.
“I look forward to it a lot,” he said. “It's not scary, but I will be a little bit nervous maybe! Playing with players like Frank Lampard and John Terry will be a huge thing."
