Arsenal have signed goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale on a long-term contract from Sheffield United.
The 23-year-old was part of England’s Euro 2020 squad and has represented his country at all levels from under-18 to under-21.
“The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes, at which point Aaron will be available for Sunday’s match against Chelsea,” Arsenal said in a statement on the club website.
Ramsdale began his career with the youth set-up at Bolton before moving to Bramall Lane in 2013.
He joined Bournemouth in 2017 and made 37 appearances for the Cherries, as well as having loan spells at Chesterfield and AFC Wimbledon.
Ramsdale returned to Sheffield United in 2020 and started every Premier League match for the Blades last term, being named the club’s player of the season.
He was called into the England squad on the eve of Euro 2020 this summer after Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson was forced to withdraw with a hip problem.
