Patrick John Miguel van Aanholt (born 29 August 1990) is a Dutch footballer who plays for Sunderland as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Chelsea[edit]

Van Aanholt joined Chelsea's youth ranks in 2007. He made his professional debut on loan to Coventry City on 9 August 2009 starting in a 2–1 Football League Championship win over Ipswich Town.[3] He was recalled to Chelsea in December due to the exit of many players due to the African Nations Cup.

He was first selected for Chelsea in an FA Cup tie away to Preston North End in the 2009–10 edition of the Cup, wearing the squad number 52, but did not make an appearance, remaining on the bench. He made his Chelsea debut on 24 March 2010, in a 5–0 away win at Portsmouth, replacing Yuri Zhirkov at left-back after 71 minutes.[4] He then made his home debut, on 27 March 2010, against Aston Villa in a 7–1 victory, again as a substitute.[5] On 29 January 2010, Van Aanholt joined Newcastle United on a one-month loan deal after regular left back José Enrique suffered injury. He had been cover for the Spaniard, sustaining Newcastle's productive left flank with Jonás Gutiérrez. He played his last game in the 2–1 away victory at Watford.

Van Aanholt scored his first career goal on 22 September 2010 in the 4–3 defeat to former club Newcastle United in the League Cup.[6] On 26 January 2011, he joined Leicester City on loan until the end of the season.[7] He made his debut in a 1–0 win over Sheffield United on 1 February 2011,[8] and suffered a torn muscle in his thigh at the end of the month after playing six games.[9] Van Aanholt scored his first senior league goal in a 4–0 victory over Burnley on 9 April 2011.[10]

On transfer deadline day 31 August 2011, Van Aanholt signed for Wigan Athletic on a season-long loan deal.[11] Van Aanholt's loan spell, originally a season-long arrangement, was terminated by mutual consent between all three parties. During this uneventful loan spell, Van Aanholt played three league matches and one League Cup tie for the Latics but did not feature in their first team after 1 October.[12]

On 6 January 2012, he returned to Chelsea during a season-long loan at Wigan Athletic. Nine days later, Van Aanholt signed for Dutch club Vitesse on loan until the end of the season. Van Aanholt returned to his home country Netherlands with fellow Chelsea teammates Tomas Kalas and Ulises Davila who joined Vitesse at the start of the season on loan. On 11 July 2012, he rejoined Vitesse on a new loan deal for the 2012–13 season.[13] On 7 July 2013 the Vitesse loan deal was extended for the 2013–14 season. He made his first start of the 2013-14 season in a 1-1 first leg draw away at Petrolul Ploiești in the UEFA Europa League, a match in which he was booked in the 86th minute.[14] He went on to start eight of the next nine league fixtures for Vitesse,[15][16] including getting an assist in a 1-1 draw at Roda JC.[17]

On 7 December 2013, Van Aanholt netted Vitesse's fifth goal in a 6-2 away defeat of PSV keeping Vitesse at the top of the Eredivisie table.[18]

Sunderland[edit]

On 25 July 2014 Van Aanholt left Chelsea and signed for Sunderland for an undisclosed fee, believed to be £1.5 million, on a four-year contract.[19]

International career[edit]

On 19 November 2013, Van Aanholt won his first senior cap for the Netherlands in a friendly against Colombia, coming on in injury time for Memphis Depay in a 0-0 draw at the Amsterdam Arena.[20]
