Report: New York Red Bulls defender Matt Miazga seriously considering move to Europe next year

Matt Miazga, New York Red Bulls

The New York Red Bulls found a budding MLS star in 2015 with Homegrown defender Matt Miazga.

The 20-year-old, who had a breakout season between the Red Bulls and impressed at the U-20 World Cup for the US national team, is reportedly drawing interest from European clubs – and may be ready to make the move abroad.

That's the report from's Ives Galarcep, anyway, as he notes Miazga, who already has a Polish passport, is drawing interest in England, including Premier League sides Chelsea and Leicester City, with former MLS player and coach Ryan Nelsen working as his representative in England to get the youngster a transfer.

With the European Union passport, Miazga would not be subject to the same strict work permit rules in England that have previously prevented other Americans, including New England Revolution forward Juan Agudelo, from getting permission to play in England.

Galarcep reports Miazga is on the last year of his current contract in 2016, which may entice the Red Bulls to part with one of their best young players while they can still command a transfer fee from a foreign club.
