The mini transfer saga of Matt Miazga and Chelsea continues on as the Premier League season is a day away from kicking off. Chelsea squad numbers were leaked today and the USMNT center back was revealed to have not been given a number. This is presumably a good indicator that a loan move is close to being completed.

In addition to not getting a number, a report from GOAL UK states that Miazga will definitely go on loan to a Premier League side very soon. The report says that Chelsea will snub an offer from Bundesliga club, Eintracht Frankfurt, after receiving two bids from unknown clubs in the English top flight.

It appears certain at this point that Miazga has one foot out of the Stamford Bridge door. He’s now just waiting for the details to get sorted out by the respective clubs.

Honestly, after looking over the current Premier League landscape, it’s hard to predict which club would be the ideal landing spot for the 21-year-old defender. Instead of me making a fool of myself and getting it totally wrong, feel free to speculate in the comments below. We’ll keep you updated as the situation continues to unfold.
