Nottingham Forest have announced the signing of USA international goalkeeper Matt Turner from Arsenal.

Turner has signed a four-year contract and joins Forest in a deal believed to be worth £10million.

Forest will pay an initial fee of £7million, while the remaining £3million will be based on performance.

Turner has struggled to get regular first-team football at Arsenal, due to the impressive performances from Aaron Ramsdale last season.

Turner told Nottingham’s official website: “It feels great to be here. It’s something I’m really looking forward to, it’s a great challenge and a great step in my career.

“When I heard that there was interest to bring me here, it just felt right for my family, it felt right when my agent spoke to me about it and it feels like the right move for me right now.”

“The manager and the backroom staff, everything about the club has a little sparkle to it. It’s felt right from the start and I’m happy it’s got done.”

“I’m looking forward to making a connection with my teammates, the fans and the city. I’m grateful to be here and can’t wait to get things started.”
