Arsenal have signed Brighton and Hove Albion goalkeeper Mat Ryan on loan until the end of the season.

They have brought in Australian international Ryan, who had fallen down the pecking order at Brighton having been dropped by manager Graham Potter.

The 28-year-old was Seagulls No 1 after being signed by Chris Hughton following promotion to the Premier League in 2017, making 121 appearances in the competition, however he has lost his place in the starting XI to Robert Sanchez, and will now provide back-up at Emirates Stadium instead.

Brighton manager Potter told his club’s official website:“Mathas been a great servant to the club in the Premier League, and he has played no small part for the club at this level.

“We have incredible talent and competition at this club for just one position, and understandably, as Australia’s No 1,Matwants the chance of more regular opportunities.

“Matis a pleasure to work with, a consummate professional and someone who works incredibly hard at his game. We wish him well at Arsenal and will be watching his progress there.”
