The 20-year-old lasted just 10 minutes at the County Ground before being replaced by Ramires as Chelsea went onto win 2-0.

The injury puts van Ginkel’s participation in next year’s World Cup in major doubt with Netherlands unlikely to risk the youngster with an abundance of talent at their disposal.

Van Ginkel, who signed from Vitesse Arnhem over the summer, has two international caps to his name.
