United States international Matt Miazga has again left Chelsea on loan, signing a one-year deal with Anderlecht.

Miazga moved to Stamford Bridge from New York Red Bulls in January 2016 but has appeared just twice for the Blues in all competitions.

The centre-back has previously had loan spells with Vitesse, Nantes and Reading, spending the past season and a half with the Championship club.

Miazga has two years left on his contract at Chelsea, having extended his initial deal – due to expire at the end of last season – when he left for Nantes in 2018.

Anderlecht sporting director Peter Verbeke said: “Matt can win duels but also has pace and technique, a combination that is hard to find and one we always look for in a central defender as we want to keep playing our own style of football.”

The Belgian giants are unbeaten in the league this season but down in sixth under Vincent Kompany.
