Matt Turner: I know my game will suit Arsenal

Departing New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner insists his game suits Arsenal's style.

Turner is determined to keep possession of the ball better - because it's the Arsenal way.

He told Sky Sports: "The DNA of this team is possession-based and I believe that's what they will expect from me when I get on the pitch.

"It's the area of my game that some call a weakness but one where I've improved over the past few months.

"I'm connecting a few more passes, reading the game better and understanding the way I can hurt teams a lot better.

"We don't play that [passing] style in New England but when I go with the national team, we do. When I have extended periods with the national team, I read the game better and make more passes.

"I'm excited to be at Arsenal to do that every single day instead of two or three weeks here or there."
