Daley Blind is on the verge of leaving Manchester United for a return to his former club Ajax. United announced that a deal has been agreed for his transfer.

The Dutch utility man arrived at Old Trafford from Ajax in a £14m transfer 4 years ago, under then manager Louis van Gaal. According to recent reports, United are set to receive a similar fee for his sale, with the potential to rise further with performance-related bonuses.

Blind was a useful utility player, but short of real quality in any of the positions in which he played. After only making 7 league appearances last season, it has been likely for some time that he would be moved on this summer.
