Report: Aaron Ramsdale not in Sheffield United squad for West Brom

Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is on the verge of signing for Arsenal, and will not play at West Brom this evening for the Blades.

The Athletic break the news, claiming the Gunners have agreed to pay £24 and another £6m in add-ons for the United number one.

It will bring an end to one of the longest running sagas of the summer for United and should allow Slavisa Jokanovic funds to do more business before the window shuts.

Ramsdale is thought to have been keen to make the move to the Gunners and has now got his wish.

For United, it represents a quick profit on a goalkeeper they paid £18m for last summer. All in all, £30m will be a welcome piece of business for the club.

Wes Foderingham or Michael Verrips will now take Ramsdale’s place in the starting XI for West Brom tonight.

The 23-year-old will move to North London and compete with Bernd Leno for the number one spot at Arsenal.
