Arsenal have signed Australian goalkeeper Mat Ryan on loan from Brighton for the rest of the season from Brighton.

The 28-year-old has made 124 appearances since signing for Brighton in 2017 but he's been out of favour with Graham Potter's side after losing his place to Robert Sanchez in December.

Brighton boss Potter says Ryan wanted to leave the club in the hope of getting more first team opportunities elsewhere.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta said: "We know Mat very well through his performances with Brighton in recent seasons and he brings additional quality to our squad.

"Mat has very good Premier League experience and has played over 100 times in the league, which is something that will benefit us greatly on and off the pitch.

"We welcome Mat to Arsenal and look forward to working with him this season."

Arsenal Technical director Edu added "Mat is an experienced goalkeeper, a proven talent in the Premier League and has also played many internationals for Australia.

"Mat will further strengthen our squad with his experience and knowledge of playing at the highest level.

"Following Matt Macey’s recent move to Hibernian, Mat will provide very good competition and positive support to all our goalkeepers and we are looking forward to him integrating quickly into the set-up here at Arsenal."
