Chelsea FC fans have received the news of another centre-back signing with much trepidation, as young New York Red Bulls centre-back Matt Miazga prepares for Stamford Bridge switch.


The January transfer period has been somewhat underwhelming from the point of view of Chelsea FC, and seems to be uncannily similar to the summer transfer window. The Blues are signing yet another striker potentially past his best on loan, and could now round up the winter market with the signing of a defender that none of the Stamford Bridge faithful had hitherto heard of.

In the summer, it was Michael Hector and Papy Djilobodji that caused much amusement among the Blues’ supporters. This time, it is the turn of New York Red Bulls centre-back Matt Miazga. According to ESPN FC, the 20-year-old has less than a year left on his contract and wanted to test himself overseas. Miazga fortunately also carries a Polish passport and will not require a work permit to play his trade in England.

The news elicited different reactions from Chelsea FC fans on Twitter, with some optimistic that the youngster could make his mark at Stamford Bridge, while others expect him to be the next Papy Djilobodji. Here are some of the best reactions:
