USMNT central defender Auston Trusty is set to leave Arsenal on loan for Premier League newcomers Sheffield United.
The 24-year-old made his debut for the senior national team in March in a CONCACAF Nations League A group phase match against Grenada, providing an assist for Weston McKennie’s second goal in a 7-1 win.
Auston Trusty set to move to Sheffield United
Trusty’s international career was helped largely due to a successful season on loan last year with Championship club Birmingham City. According to The Daily Telegraph’s Mike McGrath, the Gunners are in talks with Sheffield United after the Blades provided successful short-term deals with Man City’s midfield duo of James McAtee and Tommy Doyle.

Not only did Sheffield United earn promotion back to the Premier League automatically but they also managed to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup where they were eventually beaten 3-0 at Wembley by Manchester City.
Trusty initially moved to Arsenal from MLS side Colorado Rapids but has failed to make a single appearance for Mikel Arteta’s side so far.
