Manchester United have signed highly-rated youngster Harrison Parker following his exit from Arsenal in the summer.
Parker, 15, announced his transfer to United in a social media post on Monday confirming he’d earned a contract at the club after impressing on trial in the summer window.
The England youth international called time on his nine-year spell at Arsenal earlier in the year as he looked for a new challenge in his promising career.
United fought off serious competition from fellow top sides in England to land the teenage defender and he has gone straight into their U15 set-up following his arrival.
Taking to social media earlier in the week Parker posted a picture of himself along with his new United shirt emblazoned with the No.5 and spoke of his delight at sealing the move.
“Excited to have officially signed for @manchesterunited,” he wrote on Instagram. “The new chapter starts and the hard work continues.”
Parker managed to impress United coaches during a summer trip to Northern Ireland as the club commemorated the 30th anniversary of their Milk Cup victory in 1991.
30 years ago United won the U16 section of the prestigious youth tournament when they defeated Scottish side Hearts in the decider at the Coleraine Showgrounds.
David Beckham captained a United side which featured the likes of Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Nicky Butt and Robbie Savage and was the first trophy won by the famed ‘Class of 92’.
