The Blues took to their official club website to announce a winter acquisition – a talented young American centre-back, hoping to embrace the step-up in quality.

Matt Miazga has today officially joined the Premier League‘s reigning champions Chelsea, for a reported fee of £3.5million pounds – according to talkSPORT.

The talented 20-year-old defender, who flourished in the MLS with the New York Red Bulls, has been a keen admirer of European football for quite some time and his consistent displays helped him emerge as a rising talent in America – following his debut across the Atlantic shortly after his 18th birthday.
