Chelsea have agreed a deal for young PSV Eindhoven defender Ian Maatsen.

The PSV starlet has agreed to join Chelsea this summer. Maatsen, who plays at both centre-back and left-back, is one of the most promising youngsters to emerge at PSV in years and the Dutch giants were hoping he would graduate into their first-team.

However, according to Dutch outlet ED, Maatsen has informed the club that he will be completing a move to Stamford Bridge ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

The 16-year-old was offered a three-year contract to stay on at PSV but decided against signing a deal.

PSV will receive a training fee of €110,000 (£97,000) from the Blues and will also get a cut of any future transfer for the teenager.

Maatsen will join the Chelsea U18 side upon his arrival.
