Van Ginkel spent various loans away from Stamford Bridge, spending time at Stoke City and AC Milan.

The midfielder had been at PSV Eindhoven this term.

And he recently revealed his fear at being let go by the Blues this summer.

Other players to leave Chelsea when their deals expire are Jamal Blackman, Izzy Brown, Declan Frith, Danilo Pantic and Jack Wakely.

Goalkeeper Blackman, 27, had been the club’s current longest serving-player having joined the Blues aged just 13 in 2006.

However, he never played a senior game for the club, instead having multiple loan spells in the lower leagues – including being relegated from the Championship with Rotherham last season.

But one man who has been given another lease of life is Olivier Giroud.

The striker was widely expected to leave after becoming a bit-part player under Tuchel.

But Chelsea revealed today they secretly extended Giroud’s contract for one more year in APRIL.

Another man signing on for an extra season is Thiago Silva, who had his automatic extension triggered by Chelsea today.

Meanwhile, boss Tuchel extended his contract until 2024 today after leading the club to European glory last weekend.
