Chelsea defender Matt Miazga hopes for Anderlecht stay

Matt Miazga accepts his time with Chelsea is coming to an end.

The US international defender joined the Blues from New York Red Bulls for £3.5million five years ago. But Miazga, 25, has since made just two senior appearances - both in April 2016.

Miazga's Chelsea contract is up this summer, and he hopes Belgians Anderlecht will hand him a new deal after impressing for Vincent Kompany's side.

Miazga said: "I can't say anything for sure about whether I will be with Anderlecht next season.

"But what I can say is that I don't expect to get an extension at Chelsea.

"It hasn't happened for me there. But, listen, I would do it all again given the chance.

"I have lots of respect for Chelsea, and learned a hell of a lot with them.

"I've trained alongside stars like Eden Hazard, and I have been able to play twice in the Premier League.

"It has been unforgettable."
