Former Red Bulls center back Matt Miazga is on the move – again.
Chelsea FC loaned the 25-year-old defender to RSC Anderlecht in Belgium on a one-year loan, it was announced Saturday.
It will be the fourth club the U.S. international has been loaned to since he joined the English Premier League team in 2016.
He also has had stints with Vitesse (Netherlands), Nantes (France) and most recently Reading (England).

“Matt can win duels, but also has pace and technique,” Anderlecht sports director Peter Verbeke said in a statement. “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. Matt has played in the Dutch Eredivisie, where he has won the Cup with Vitesse, the French Ligue 1 and the Championship. He’s 25 and has the necessary experience. Now it’s Matt’s turn to bring some extra competition to our defense!”
Miazga has made 18 appearances for the USMNT, scoring one goal.
