Arsenal have confirmed the £20million sale of goalkeeper Emi Martinez to Premier League rivals Aston Villa.

Martinez shone for the Gunners during the end of last season after being forced to step up following a knee injury to No1 Bernd Leno.



The Argentina international helped Arsenal win a record 14th FA Cup, but has now joined Villa on a four-year deal as he goes after regular first-team football.



Villa boss Dean Smith said: “We are really pleased with the signing of our new goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

“We know how highly Arsenal rated him and we watched his outstanding performances last season in a trophy-winning top side.

“We moved for Emi when we saw the opportunity, as it is rare to be able to buy a top class goalkeeper who hasn’t yet reached their peak age and who can therefore be a key player for our Club for the long term.”
