Bio

Aston Villa secured the signing of Ian Maatsen from Chelsea in June 2024.
 
The Dutchman was fresh from being named in the UEFA Champions League Team of the Season after helping Borussia Dortmund reach the final of the competition during his six-month loan spell in Germany.
 
Maatsen moved to England in 2018 when Chelsea beat a host of clubs to sign him from PSV Eindhoven. Loan spells at Charlton Athletic, Coventry City and Burnley followed, with the latter stint seeing him win the Championship and being named in the PFA Team of the Season.

The defender was selected for the Netherlands' Euro 2024 squad, which follows on from the promise he’s shown at age-group level where he’s played for the Dutch at U15s, U16s, U17s, U18s and U21s.

A goal in the Under-17 European Championship final in 2019 helped his country to a 4-2 win against Italy as Maatsen picked up silverware in the famous orange shirt.
