Matt Turner joined Nottingham Forest today in a permanent deal, having spent just one season at Arsenal after his arrival from MLS.
However, the Arsenal fan has enjoyed his time at the club, and sent a message to fans as he begins the next stage of his career.
Via Instagram, he said:
What a time! Thank you for the memories, Gooners. I genuinely gave my all every single day to try to push and help the club as much as I could, I hope the fans always felt that.
My family will forever feel at home in North London, Easton even seemingly fell in love with the sport!
We accomplished so many things and made so many lifelong friendships at Arsenal. That being said, it’s time for a new challenge in my career and for our family life, I’m so excited for what’s to come!
See you on the other side my Dawgs 😉
Matt has been registered in time for an immediate return to the Emirates, when we open the season against Forest on Saturday.
I’m sure we all wish him well at his new club … just not this weekend. Woof!
