Manchester City have reportedly completed the signing of U.S. national team and Columbus Crew goalkeeper Zack Steffen.

Steffen completed his medical and signed his new contract on Thursday, confirmed Goal who quoted multiple sources.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper will join the Premier League champions for a transfer fee of $7.5 milion (£6m) that could rise to $10m if Steffen reaches certain incentives.

With Steffen unlikely to succeed in his quest to secure a UK 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.

The 2018 MLS goalkeeper of the year, Steffen enjoyed a breakout year for club and country, emerging as the first-choice goalkeeper with the USMNT, and turning in several standout performances, including a strong showing in the national team’s 1-1 draw with France prior to the World Cup.
