PSV has tried to convince the 16-year-old to remain in Eindhoven and offered him a three-year contract, but Maatsen has opted for a move to Chelsea.

The deal has not yet been confirmed but PSV are set to receive a training fee of €110,000 and a cut of any future transfer for the defender, who has been dubbed the “New Nathan Ake” in the English media.

Maatsen, who can play at right-back, centre-back or in midfield, is set to play in Chelsea’s U18’s next season.
