Sheffield United winger agrees move to Arizona State Sun Devils

Sheffield United winger Keri Matthews has agreed a move to Arizona State Sun Devils according to reports on the United States college side’s official website.

The 18-year-old moved to Sheffield United from York City’s Regional Talent Centre (RTC) in summer 2019 and quickly obtained first team footballing experience with The Blades, going on to sign her first professional terms with the club a year later.

Matthews has gone on to make a handful of first team appearances for Neil Redfearn’s side including eight outings in this season’s FA Women’s Championship. She last appeared as a second half substitute as Sheffield United defeated Coventry United 3-0 at St George’s Park in mid-January.

It has now been confirmed that the player has agreed a move to the United States where she will link-up with the Arizona State Sun Devils. Matthews will combine her football with her studies at the Barrett Honors College. The highly-rated Barnsley-born winger will use her time in the United States to help her develop her game further.

It is understood that the England youth international had a number of offers on the table and opted to join Arizona State Sun Devils after being impressed by the level of football, quality of coaching and the high standard of education on offer.
