Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen is now set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

According to David Ornstein, Aston Villa and Chelsea have ‘reached an agreement’ over the transfer of Ian Maatsen.

Aston Villa have agreed to pay slightly over £35m for Maatsen.

Borussia Dortmund had the option to trigger a release clause to sign Maatsen, but it has now expired.

The 22-year-old has already agreed personal terms with Villa over a six-year deal.

Ian Maatsen who has been at Chelsea since the age of 16, will now be leaving the club permanently to join Aston Villa.

Maatsen has spent several seasons out on loan, but it was two seasons ago he made wave on loan with Burnley, before another very impressive loan spell with Borussia Dortmund last season. The 22-year-old made only 16 first-team appearances for the Blues.
