Nantes Complete Loan Transfer For Chelsea Defender Matt Maizga

French Ligue 1 outfit Nantes have signed American defender Matt Miazga from Chelsea on a season-long loan deal.

Miazga, 23, joins Nantes from the Premier League giants on a temporary contract but the French outfit were given the option to make the deal permanent at the end of the loan.

He also signed a two-year contract extension with the Blues until 2022 before he was farmed out on loan to Nantes.

The seven-cap United States (US) international joined Chelsea in January 2016 and went on to make two Premier League appearances in April 2016 before he was sent out on loan.

He has spent the last two seasons on loan at Dutch Eredivisie outfit Vitesse Arnhem, making 72 appearances in all competitions in addition to helping the club win the Dutch Cup title for the first time in 2017.
