Aston Villa have agreed a deal with Chelsea for left-back Ian Maatsen.

Maatsen had a £35m release clause which expired earlier this week, allowing Chelsea to negotiate the higher price they agreed with Villa.

Borussia Dortmund were keen on signing the left-back on a permanent deal after his successful loan spell at the Bundesliga club last season. They made offers but fell short of the original release clause.

He made 16 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund, scoring two goals, and featured seven times for the German club in the Champions League, finding the net once.

On top of a deal for Maatsen, Villa want to sign Everton striker Lewis Dobbin and have made an offer for the 21-year-old, who made 12 Premier League appearances and scored one goal last season.

Everton, meanwhile, are closing in on the signing of Tim Iroegbunam from Aston Villa.

Talks for the midfielder are in the final stages and a deal is expected to be completed soon.

Both Everton and Villa are among the Premier League clubs under pressure to sell players to stay in line with Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

Sky Sports New chief reporter Kaveh Solhekol:

“Maatsen had a release clause in his contract, which Dortmund could have activated.

“That release clause has expired, which meant Aston Villa could make their move and that is exactly what they’ve done.

“It’s crucial that Villa are in the Champions League. The player himself wants to carry on playing in the Champions League.

“He’s expected to sign a six-year deal at Villa and it’s a very good deal for Unai Emery’s side.

“He played so well for Dortmund, helping them reach the Champions League final.”
