Chelsea are ready to allow American defender Matt Miazga join Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt on loan for the 2016-17 season, according to The Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old was signed by the West London club in January after he had starred for the New York Red Bulls and the United States national side.

However, first-team opportunities for only afforded to the defender once Chelsea had nothing left to play for last season.

Despite the fact that Antonio Conte is in the market for defensive reinforcements this summer, Miazga is seemingly not ready for the exertions of the Premier League and will instead be farmed out to Germany.

Although a talented young player, the reasons behind Chelsea’s purchase of the American enforcer remain to be seen.

With football now the global game and a battle off the pitch to win fans, the Blues have been accused of purchasing Miazga with the objective of tapping into the North American supporter base.

Chelsea have had a sizeable number of young players farmed out on loan over recent campaigns and it appears that Miazga will be added to 2016-17’s list of those owned by the West London club but playing elsewhere.
