DONE DEAL? Man City and Columbus Crew agree Zack Steffen fee

Zack Steffen

Manchester City have finalised the signing of United States of America goalkeeper Zack Steffen from Columbus Crew and will make the deal official in January, Goal reports.

The 23-year-old has completed his medical with the Citizens and will pen his new contract on Thursday.

With Steffen unlikely to succeed in his quest to secure a United Kingdom work permit, the American goalkeeper is expected to be sent out on loan, with La Liga side Girona a leading candidate to be his next destination. French side Nice, managed by former New York City boss Patrick Vieira, is also an option.

As reported by Telegraph Sport last month, City are eager to sign the reigning MLS goalkeeper of the year.

Steffen, who began his career with Freiberg in 2015, has seen his stock rise considerably in the past two seasons and was named 2018 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year. Steffen has six caps for the US.

Steffen is seen as a potential long-term option for City, which now boasts Brazilian national team goalkeeper Ederson as its starter.

It is understood that City are not looking at loaning Steffen to their sister club and Columbus' MLS rivals, New York City FC, but he may have to go on loan somewhere if they can not get a work permit.
