Arsenal agree Ramsdale deal

Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

Negotiations between the two clubs had seemed to break down irretrievably last week, after the Gummers had seen two bids for the 23-year old rejected.

The Premier League club had made it clear they were not prepared to go higher and that unless United dropped their valuation of the player the deal was off.

However, representatives of United reached out to Arsenal, and intimated they were ready to compromise on price, and now an initial fee of £24 million has been agreed. That could rise eventually to £30 million with add-ons, which are dependent on Ramsdale eventually becoming the number one goalkeeper at the Emirates.

Already new Blades’ boss Slaviša Jokanović has admitted that when he took the job, he was aware that Ramsdale was one of two players, along with midfielder Sander Berge, who could be sold without his permission.

There are now hopes that Ramsdale can be registered in time for the Arsenal squad to face Chelsea at the Emirates on Sunday.
