Dutch Silver

Ladies and gentleman, Matt Miazga is a KNVB Cup champion. The US international went all 90 in defense as Vitesse scored the first trophy in their 125-year history with a 2-0 victory over AZ Alkmaar at De Kuip on Sunday evening.

Miazga becomes the sixth American to win the Dutch Cup, following John O'Brien, DaMarcus  Beasley, Oguchi Onyewu, Jozy Altidore and Aron Jóhannsson.

Can't remember but is he on loan? If not any word on a summer transfer?

He is on loan, yes. As you can guess, Chelsea has scads of center backs signed for next season's squad, though a few of them will be returning from loans like Miazga. I'd imagine he could be given some sort of preseason look, but it also seems quite possible he'll go back out on loan again. If I forced to bet on it, I'd wager he'll be back in Vitesse colors next season, one way or another.

If Chelsea recall Christensen from Gladbach, there would be a space open there...
