Another one down. Luke Shaw has been confirmed as a Manchester United player and will join for a fee of around £30m.

It's a lot to pay, but if Shaw really can be our left-back for a decade then it'll be good value for money. This is of course, the second transfer wrapped up in as many days after United bagged Ander Herrera yesterday.

Shaw 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."

And Ryan Giggs, doing most of the PR work in the absence of Louis van Gaal, 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."
