Arsenal defender Martin Angha will join Nuremberg on a free transfer in the summer transfer window, the Bundesliga club have confirmed.

It was claimed on Monday that the 19-year-old was closing in on a switch to Germany having agreed a four-year contract with Nuremberg and the switch, which will be completed on July 1, has now been announced.

"Martin Angha has been brought to a top level of football at Arsenal over the last few years,” Martin Bader, the German side's head of sport and public relations, told the club's official website

"He has shown his potential in London and will make the next steps in his development at FCN."

Bader added: "We’ve had our eye on him for a long time. He matches our idea of a player who could flourish."

Angha will be out of contract with Arsenal at the end of the season and, despite having made two appearances for Arsene Wenger's first-team this campaign, has decided his future lies away from the Emirates Stadium.

The Swiss centre-back has featured frequently for the club's under-21 and NextGen sides this term, and played a role in taking the Gunners into the semi-final of the latter competition, where they lost to Chelsea after extra time.

Angha played for Grasshoppers and FC Zurich during his formative years before joining Arsenal's academy in 2010, and placed on record his thanks to the Gunners for providing him with the opportunity to further his career.

"I had a great time in London and thank Arsenal for everything they’ve done," Angha told the Nuremberg website. "Now I’m looking forward to the challenge of playing for FCN.”
