Chelsea Defender Matt Miazga Admits Desire to Remain in Belgium

Chelsea have gained a reputation of sending a high number of individuals out on loan each season, with some of these players unable to make a single first-team appearance before they are sold on. Chelsea defender Matt Miazga is just one example of a player who has struggled to break into the Blues’ first team but remains contracted by the West London club.

The central defender has spent this season with Anderlecht and has thrived under Vincent Kompany‘s leadership. With his future at Chelsea yet to be decided and the impact of Thomas Tuchel’s arrival yet to be determined, the USA international is seemingly content at the Belgian club.

Miazga’s arrival at Anderlecht was the fourth time that he has been shipped on loan since joining the Blues from New York Red Bulls in 2016.

Last season, the 25-year-old racked up 24 appearances for Reading, proving his worth in the country’s second tier. However, it remains to be seen whether his move to Belgian’s first division is another step in his progression with Chelsea, or if the Blues deem Miazga as surplus to requirements.

The 2020/21 campaign has been a successful one for the USA international. He has emerged as an integral part of Kompany’s squad, racking up 26 appearances since his move in October.

Speaking to HLN, as cited by Football.London, Miazga, addressing what the future holds for him, said: “Ask me again later. I would like to be here, but such a decision depends on several parameters.”

The 25-year-old’s contract expires in the summer of 2022, meaning that the Belgian club would need to offer a fee for his services, should they attempt to secure his signing in the coming months.
