U.S. international and New York Red Bulls defender Matt Miazga hone his skills in Red Bulls Academy that made him the anchor of the team’s back line. Now he is on his way to Premier League side Chelsea according to ESPN.

He has less than a year to run on his current contract with the Red Bulls, and given his desire to test himself overseas, New York was left with little choice but to sell now rather than lose him for nothing at the end of the 2016 MLS season.

According to the Daily Mail the transfer fee is approximately $5 million. Miazga also possesses a Polish passport, meaning he will not have to obtain a work permit.

Miazga is currently with the U.S. national team. The U.S. National team will have an exhibition game against Iceland on January 31 and Canada on February 5. According to reports, Miazga has already departed and is on his way to England, where he will undergo a medical and then join up with his new club.
