Deportivo Alaves set to reach agreement with Chelsea over Matt Miazga

According to reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano, Deportivo Alaves are close to agreeing on a deal with Chelsea for Matt Miazga. Talks are said to be going on between both clubs over a loan deal till next year. The deal is expected to be completed next week.

Miazga joined Chelsea more than five years ago in January 2016. However, he has been out on repeated loan spells to various clubs like Vitesse Arnhem, Nantes and Reading. Even after impressing in the Championship in 2020, Chelsea sent him on loan again to Anderlecht, who are managed by former Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany.

The American has flourished under his guidance, playing 33 games this term. Miazga spoke earlier about how his future was away from Chelsea and wanted to remain at the Belgian side. However, Anderlecht ruled out a permanent deal and now the defender is back at Chelsea for the time being.

The USMNT star looks like he will again head out on loan, this time to Spain. Fabrizio Romano revealed that Deportivo Alaves are in talks with Chelsea over a season-long loan deal and an agreement is close. It is expected that the deal will be done by next week. Romano also added that Michy Batshuayi’s deal with Besiktas will also take place during that time.

Chelsea already have a decent contingent of defenders. Clearly, 26-year-old Miazga does not have a future at the club and that is why he is being shipped out on loan again. However, with his contract set to end in a year, Chelsea could lose him for free after the completion of the loan.
