Director opens up after Chelsea OFFICIALLY announce late defender deal is signed and sealed,

Get the Chelsea word out there!

Matt Miazga has again left Chelsea on loan, signing a one-year deal with Anderlecht.

The U.S. men’s national team center back is leaving for a season-long spell at Anderlecht, the fourth temporary club away from Stamford Bridge for the 25-year-old since he joined Chelsea from the New York Red Bulls in 2016.

And after seeing the transfer deal get done, the Belgian Pro League’s club sporting director Verbeke is delighted with the acquisition of the United States international, who he feels has the necessary experience to play for the club.

“Matt can win duels, but also has pace and technique“, Verbeke told the club’s official site<

“[It is] a combination that is hard to find and one we always look for in a central defender, as we want to keep playing our own style of football.

“Matt has played in the Dutch Eredivisie, where he has won the cup with Vitesse, the French Ligue 1 and the Championship.

“He’s 25 and has the necessary experience.

“Now it’s Matt’s turn to bring some extra competition to our defence!“

This is a good move for the man to make and he will perform well under Kompany, but he will be hoping that next summer he will get a permanent move, he needs one.

He has never made the grade here at the Bridge and never will, so needs to think about his future, he is now 25-years old and should be in the prime of his life.

But good luck to the lad, as we said, this is a good move
