Here come the defensive reinforcements we were told needed to arrive at Chelsea for Matt Miazga to be able to take a season-long loan to a club more likely to to let him play.

Marcos Alonso's move from Fiorentina has been confirmed by the Italian club:

The arrival of a left back probably isn't sufficient for Miazga to be allowed out to play, but if David Luiz lands at Chelsea, the American will surely be surplus to requirements Stamford Bridge.

And David Luiz is now expected to land at Chelsea.

There aren't many hours left before the UK transfer window closes, but it doesn't take long to send a fax. From this distance, Miazga's shot at getting out on loan rests on Luiz having a quick and trouble-free medical.
