Man United ‘agree’ first transfer for Erik ten Hag ahead of busy summer

Manchester United are on the verge of completing their first transfer since Erik ten Hag was confirmed as the club’s next manager.

Ten Hag will oversee the start of an overhaul across the first team this summer, but there is also active recruitment within United’s youth ranks.

And according to talkSPORT, United have agreed a deal with Stevenage to sign highly-rated goalkeeper Elyh Harrison.

The Red Devils are understood to have successfully tabled a six-figure fee for the 16-year-old, beating several Premier League rivals to his signature.

Harrison will join the host of promising goalkeepers United boast in every age group throughout their talent-rich academy set-up and high-profile first team.

And while he’s yet to make his senior debut, the teenager also has experience among Stevenage’s senior squad.

Earlier this season, Harrison, 15 at the time, joined The Boro’s first-team training and warmed up with senior goalkeepers before a League Two match.

He was handed his opportunity amid an impressive campaign in the U18s, which many top-flight clubs have seemingly recognised.

It goes without saying that Harrison is one for the future, and he will likely immediately join up with United’s thriving U18s once he arrives.

Travis Binnion’s side are set for a third-place league finish and have reached the FA Youth Cup final ahead of a memorable night at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
