Sunderland's new signing Patrick van Aanholt put in a terrific display on debut and it resulted in big fantasy returns.
van Aanholt was signed from Chelsea in July, slotted straight in to the left-back position for Sunderland's opening game against West Brom and instantly looks like he could be a fantasy hit in the Yahoo game. The defender intercepted a phenomenal eight passes and also picked up an assist for Seb Larsson's late equaliser after great work down the flank. 14 points is an excellent score without a clean sheet, he remains affordable and is only 1% owned - jump on the bandwagon!

Sunderland have signed Netherlands international Patrick van Aanholt from Chelsea for an undisclosed fee.

This is an important deal for Sunderland, who had no recognised left-back in their squad after Marcos Alonso's loan deal ended back in May. van Aanholt never made the grade at Chelsea, spending the past two seasons out on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, but he is highly regarded in Holland and very nearly made the Dutch World Cup squad. It will be interesting to see how he copes back in the Premier League, as he could be a fantasy option worth keeping an eye on if he secures a starting spot at the Stadium of Light.

Chelsea have decided to let Patrick van Aanholt, Gael Kakuta, and Thorgan Hazard go on season long loans to gain valuable playing experience.

Van Aanholt and Kakuta are going to Vitesse Arnhem and Hazard is headed to Zulte Waregem. The players are for Chelsea's future and it is probably good they are going to gain valuable playing time. Minutes will be hard to come by at Chelsea and these youngsters should be happy for the opportunity.

Chelsea defender Patrick Van Aanholt is returning to his home team Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan.

Chelsea are very strong at left back with Ashley Cole and Ryan Bertrand, who are both capable of starting in the Premier League. The Blues will likely hold on to Aanholt for a while and eventually let him compete with Bertrand once Ashley Cole leaves or retires. For now, he's back in the Netherlands.
