Maatsen in shock £37.5m transfer to Villa from Chelsea

Ian Maatsen will join Aston Villa in a £37.5 million ($47m) transfer, with the Chelsea defender set to sign a six-year deal with Unai Emery’s side.

Maatsen has been linked with a permanent move away from Stamford Bridge since the end of the season, with Borussia Dortmund having been eager to bring him back to the club after his successful loan spell. However, Fabrizio Romano has now confirmed that the Dutch left-back will join Aston Villa and have another go at making his mark on the Premier League.

The report from Romano has mentioned that Unai Emery’s side have acquired the 22-year-old Dutchman for a reported fee of £37.5 million ($47.4m). Maatsen will sign a six-year deal with Villa that will see him remain on their books through to 2030.

Romano also stated that Aston Villa midfielder Omari Kellyman will join Chelsea in a separate deal that will be worth £19 million ($24m,) and the 18-year-old will also sign a six-year deal until the summer of 2030.

The defender is currently with the Dutch national squad in Germany for the Euros but hasn’t featured so far for Ronald Koeman’s side, and will look to complete the Aston Villa deal as soon as possible, having already passed his medical.
