Ghana international Christian Astu will be loaned out to a club in England and Germany after Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem confirmed he would not be returning for a second loan spell.
The 22-year-old signed for English giants Chelsea last summer but was loaned out to the Dutch side for regular playing time.
It was a successful loan spell for Atsu scored five goals and providing six assists in 30 Eredivisie matches.
Vitesse coach Peter Bosz had hoped Atsu would re-join them for next season but claims top clubs in England and Germany wants the former FC Porto player.
“Atsu won’t return to Vitesse,” Bosz told Voetbal International.
“Almost half of the Bundesliga and the Premier League are interested in him.”
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is unlikely to hand him first team opportunities at Stamford Bridge
And so the youngster must look elsewhere for game time.
