Aissati: Looking for fresh start
Vitesse Arnhem have made Ajax midfielder Ismail Aissati their latest loan signing.
Vitesse secured the services of Chelsea's young Serbian duo Nemanja Matic and Slobodan Rajkovic on season-long loan deals on Tuesday.
And the ambitious Eredivisie outfit have followed that up with the capture of Aissati on a temporary deal, with a view to a permanent move.
The 22-year-old made his professional debut at the age of 16 at PSV Eindhoven but failed to hold down a regular first-team place.
He was loaned to FC Twente for the second half of the 2007/08 season and signed for PSV's rivals Ajax in the summer of 2008.
But Aissati failed to live up to expectations in Amsterdam too and made just 14 league appearances last season, scoring three goals.
Now he is hoping to kick-start his career at Vitesse, who finished a respectable 14th last term and are hoping to force their way into the higher echelons of the Eredivisie after the arrival of Georgian investor Merab Jordania.
