USA national team and Columbus Crew goalkeeper Zack Steffen has finalized his transfer to Manchester City after completing his medical and signing his new contract on Thursday, multiple sources have confirmed to Goal.

It was known that City were in advanced talks to sign Steffen and multiple sources have told Goal that the transfer is now complete, despite a lack of official confirmation from either club.

The 23-year-old has completed his medical with the Citizens and will pen his new contract on Thursday. French side Nice, managed by former New York City boss Patrick Vieira, is also an option.

Steffen's move to City smashes the record fee for an MLS goalkeeper, previously set by Tim Howard when he joined Manchester United for $3 million in 2003. Harrison is now on loan with Leeds United, while Palmer-Brown is now on loan with Dutch side NAC Breda.

Should he fail to obtain a work permit, Steffen could re-apply next year. Steffen has six caps for the US. He endured an unhappy stint at Freiburg, leaving the German club after a year and a half to sign with the Crew.

A work permit seems unlikely right away, and so the highly-rated goalkeeper will nearly certainly head out on loan, with Patrick Vieira's Nice a possible destination.

But Guardiola would like higher-quality competition for Ederson ideally, amid concerns about whether Muric is ready to provide back-up for the Brazil goalkeeper.
