Manchester United has completed the signing of Luke Shaw from Southampton on a four-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year.
Shaw, 18, recently won his third cap for England and was the youngest player to feature in this year’s World Cup campaign. The left back has made 67 appearances for Southampton since making his debut in 2012.
He said: “I am thrilled and excited to be joining Manchester United. I have been at Southampton since I was eight years old and I would like to thank them and the fans for everything they have done for me.
“I want to continue to progress my career and joining United is the ideal place for me to do that. I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life and also looking forward to learning from the world class players and management at the Club.”
Assistant Manager Ryan Giggs added: “Luke is a very talented young left back with great potential. He has developed immensely during his time at Southampton and has all the attributes to become a top player.
“I am delighted he has joined Manchester United as I believe this is the right Club for him to continue his development as a young player and eventually fulfil that promise.”
