Chelsea defender Matt Miazga is reportedly intending to renew his contract with Chelsea before signing a seasonal loan with Alaves for the 2021-22 season.
Miazga spent last season on loan at Anderlecht and is looking to leave Chelsea again.
According to Nisaar KinsellaMiazga is in Spain to complete the move as Chelsea are about to announce a one-year extension of his contract.
Since signing with Chelsea, Miazga has played over 150 matches on loan at several clubs across Europe, but has only played for the Blues twice.
The American had previously openly declared his desire to find a new permanent home.
What did Miazga say about his future at Chelsea?
Addressing a media company in his country, Miazga said: “The plan is to move on, short and sweet. Honestly, this is the goal,
“Let’s see what happens in the window. I know that there is interest and there are negotiations with certain clubs and certain people. I would like to finish this early summer so that I can have a proper preseason somewhere. But I think it’s time to move on. Chelsea know it and I know it too. “
Discussing his disabilities at Chelsea, Miaga said: “I would like more chances, but this is football.”
However, it does not appear that the defender, who has signed with Chelsea of the New York Red Bulls, will be provided with a permanent transfer at this time.
He could retire next year and Chelsea will renew his contract to ensure that he will receive his transfer fee.
