Cape Town - Marco Van Ginkel claims he doesn't regret his transfer to Chelsea, despite not being given a chance to prove himself at the club.

The Dutch international midfielder joined the Blues in 2013 after an outstanding season in the Eredivisie with Chelsea's feeder-team Vitesse Arnhem, and since his arrival he's only featured four times before being loaned out on loan to AC Milan, Stoke City and now PSV Eindhoven.

The midfielder, who was tipped to be the next Frank Lampard after his £8 million move to the The Pensioners, says he doesn't regret the move despite his career not reaching the heights expected of him thus far.

"It makes no sense to think about where I would have been had I made a different choice," the 2012/13 Dutch Talent of the year told De Telegraaf.

"I'm just carrying on," he added. "The past has been. You learn from it."

Van Ginkel has impressed since completing a loan move to the Dutch Champions PSV in January scoring two goals in his first three games.
