Aston Villa has reached an agreement with Chelsea to acquire Dutch defender Ian Maatsen, both clubs announced on Friday. Villa, who finished fourth in the Premier League, did not disclose the contract length or the fee for the 22-year-old left-back.

However, British media reported the deal to be valued between £35 million and £40 million ($50.54 million).

Maatsen, who joined Chelsea from PSV Eindhoven in 2019, gained recognition during loan spells at Charlton Athletic, Coventry City, Burnley, and Borussia Dortmund, where he spent the second half of last season.

His impressive performances helped the German side reach the Champions League final against Real Madrid earlier this month, including a notable goal in the quarter-final victory over Atletico Madrid.

Currently, Maatsen is with the Netherlands national team at Euro 2024 in Germany, where they are set to face Romania in the last 16 on Tuesday.
