Report: Chelsea's Matt Miazga offered to Sunderland for season-long loan


It looks like Matt Miazga could play Premier League football this season after all.

The Guardian reported on Thursday afternoon that Chelsea has offered to loan the 21-year-old centerback to Sunderland for the duration of the 2016-2017 season.

Miazga moved to Chelsea last season, but, since making the move to the London-based side, the defender has made only two appearances as he sits low in the depth chart for the Blues.

New Chelsea manager Antonio Conte spoke briefly about Miazga during the team’s summer tour, stating, “He’s a young player, he has a good technique and I think that he is working very well under the physical aspect, but the tactical aspect he can improve a lot and I think that he is improving with his work,”

Sunderland may well have an opening at centerback as the club could reportedly be bracing for the possible departure of defender Younès Kaboul. Miazga would still need to compete for playing time, however, as the team has recently acquired additional defensive help in Paddy McNair and Papy Djilobodji.

Do you believe Sunderland would be a good fit for Miazga?
