Arsenal send American defender Auston Trusty out on loan transfer to Birmingham with 23-year-old yet to play for Gunners | The Sun

ARSENAL have sent their promising centre-half Auston Trusty on a loan to Birmingham to continue his development.

The USA Under-23 international has made a season-long move to John Eustace's Championship side.

The 23-year-old joined the Gunners from Colorado Rapids in January.

Then he immediately re-joined the MLS club on loan until the end of May.

Trusty told the Birmingham website: "It feels great and I am honoured.

"I am blessed and excited for the new chapter and the new challenges. I am just really happy to be here.

"I am a centre-back but I'm willing to run, to get stuck into challenges and willing to make sacrifices for my team-mates.

"That is the kind of player you are getting for the team.

"I know it is going to be a challenge and the intensity is going to be tough, but I am just really looking forward to it."

Trusty is yet to make a first-team appearance for Mikel Arteta's Premier League heavyweights.
