Arsenal have announced the signing of goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson on a long-term contract after a fee of around £1.5m was agreed with Ligue 1 club Dijon.
The 25-year-old arrived at the Arsenal training ground last Friday to undergo a medical ahead of the move.
He is set to become the deputy to Bernd Leno, who regained the No 1 spot following Martinez’s exit, but could make his debut in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup clash away at Leicester City.
Here’s what Runarsson told Arsenal.com after his announcement: “I’m just extremely happy, extremely proud, it is a big day for me and my family. I can’t wait to get started!
“It is one of the biggest clubs in the world – they’ve won the Premier League 13 times, the FA Cup 14 times, it is a huge club and obviously playing in the Premier League as well, it is a win-win situation.
“I know it is going to be a lot of hard work, but I am ready to do everything I can to get the most amount of minutes as possible.”
Runarsson becomes the sixth signing of the window for the Gunners and will wear the No 13 shirt.
