Emiliano Martinez is excited and ready for his “new challenge” at Aston Villa after ending his decade-long association with Arsenal.

“We are really pleased with the signing of our new goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez,” the Villa boss said.



The 28-year-old goalkeeper has been subject of widespread speculation about his Gunners future, having impressed during the final weeks of the season in the absence of injured number one Bernd Leno.



Martinez was between the sticks as Mikel Arteta’s side won the FA Cup against Chelsea, just as he was when Arsenal beat Liverpool to win the Community Shield later that month.

“Obviously I trust the manager, I trust the goalkeeper coach and the club’s ambition.

When I won the FA Cup and the Community Shield, I spoke to my family and said ‘it’s time to have a new challenge’.

“I’ve been around in the UK for 10, 11 years already and I know Villa’s history and I know how big Villa is,” Martinez said.
