miazga_chelseaMatt Miazga’s moved to the Premier League is official as the former New York Red Bull has joined Chelsea. The 20-year old U.S. international has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract.

I am very happy to sign for Chelsea, a world-famous club with a reputation for major success,” he said. “I am delighted to be in the Premier League, the best league in the world, and can’t wait to meet my team-mates and get going.

Miazga, born in New Jersey, joined the Red Bulls Academy in 2009 and signed his first professional contract four years later at the age of 17. He debuted for the Red Bulls soon after turning 18.

By the 2015 Major League Soccer season the tall, strong center-back had established himself as a regular in the heart of a defence which helped the Red Bulls finish with the best regular-season record in MLS. He was an ever-present in the subsequent play-off campaign which ended with a narrow two-legged defeat to Columbus Crew in the Conference final.

He made his debut for the U.S. national team in November having represented his country at Under-20 and Under-23 level.
