USA head coach, Gregg Berhalter, has confirmed that the New England Revolution goalkeeper, Matt Turner will move to Arsenal this summer.

Arsenal had agreed on a £5.8 million deal that would include an additional £2m in add-ons for the 27-year-old shot-stopper.

However, Berhalter has now confirmed that the deal had been completed by admitting Turner would be leaving New England Revolution for Arsenal.

Berhalter said this following USA’s World Cup qualifying 1-0 win over El Salvador on Thursday.

“[Turner] Went to Fairfield University, was undrafted out of college, now he’s playing with the national team and he’s headed to Arsenal,” Berhalter said at his post-match press conference.

He added: “It’s just an amazing story and it’s all down to him, his work ethic, his belief in himself and his never give up attitude.

“It is a great story and Matt is a great guy, a great teammate and we are lucky to have him.

“Tonight was an example of where he did everything that he had to do. He was calm in all situations.
