London: Chelsea's new Dutch signing, Marco van Ginkel, will miss the rest of the season and probably next year's World Cup after sustaining a serious knee injury, his agent revealed on Thursday.

The midfielder, in only his second start for Jose Mourinho's side since his switch from Vitesse Arnhem, tore his anterior cruciate ligament in Tuesday's League Cup win over Swindon.

The damage was confirmed by an MRI scan on Wednesday, his agent Rob Jansen told Dutch news agency ANP.
