Another signing! Manchester United have officially announced that they've reached an agreement with Ajax to sign Daley Blind, subject to medical and personal terms. The fee is said to be in the region of £14 million.
The Dutch international starred under Louis van Gaal at the recent World Cup in Brazil, where he was deployed in a variety of positions. Most comfortable out on the left flank, he's also been used in central midfield and at the centre of defence.
He's been used most regularly in midfield for Ajax, where he's won four Eredivisie titles and was awarded Dutch Footballer of the Year this year. As far as versatile options go, the 24-year-old is an excellent one to have, particularly during our current injury crisis.
