Manchester United are set to sign Tottenham defender Jayden Meghoma after a deal was agreed in principle, according to Football Insider.
The Lowdown: Meghoma profiled
Meghoma is just 15 years of age and is primarily a left-back, who can also turn out as a centre-back.
Regarded as ‘one of the most promising young talents in the country’, Meghoma is an England U16 international and will turn 16 on Tuesday.
It appears as if he may be celebrating a move to Manchester ahead of his 16th birthday, with the Red Devils taking advantage of the fact Spurs are yet to secure Meghoma to a professional deal.
THE LATEST: TRANSFER UPDATE
Football Insider shared a story on Spurs defender Meghoma on Friday morning after being informed by a recruitment source.
They claimed that a deal has been agreed in principle for Meghoma to pen youth terms at Old Trafford which will then turn into a professional contract when he turns 17. The report adds that Meghoma has told his friends he will be making the move to Manchester United.
THE VERDICT: NOW FOR SENIOR SIGNINGS
It is good to see that United have been able to persuade Meghoma to leave Tottenham and sign for them, and only time will tell if a swoop turns out to be a shrewd piece of business. However, the club are yet to land a marquee signing for Erik ten Hag, with time ticking ahead of the new season and rivals moving fast in the market.
