Chelsea have confirmed that defender, Matt Miazga, has joined LaLiga club, Alaves, on loan.
The Premier League giants disclosed this in a statement on Friday ahead of their Premier League clash with Arsenal on Sunday evening.
Miazga joined Alaves after extending his Chelsea contract.
“Matt Miazga has extended his Chelsea contract and completed a loan move to Alaves,” Chelsea’s statement read.
“The 26-year-old central defender heads to northern Spain to join a side that finished two places clear of safety last season.
“A USA international, Miazga signed for Chelsea in January 2016 from New York Red Bulls, where he had progressed through the ranks and made his senior debut at the age of 18.”
Miazga made two appearances for Chelsea following a winter arrival, away at Aston Villa and Swansea City on successive weekends in April 2016, before helping Vitesse win the Dutch Cup on loan in Arnhem the following season.
The American then spent six months in France with Nantes, where he made nine appearances before switching to Reading in the Championship.
