Man United complete first summer signing as Ajax star confirms move

Ajax wonderkid Dillon Hoogewerf has confirmed he’s completed a transfer to Manchester United.

The 16-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford and Ajax confirmed in May that he will leave the Amsterdam club.

The forward is considered one of the star performers in Ajax’s academy and his performances last campaign for the U17s, where he scored ten goals and contributed six assists, caught United’s eye.

And the teenager confirmed on his Instagram page today that he has completed a move to Manchester United.

The video starts with Hoogewerf in an Ajax shirt and ends with him putting on a United kit with Red Devils anthem ‘Take Me Home United Road’ being heard in the background.

United are expected to pay an undisclosed compensation fee for the forward which Ajax are due to receive for having developed the teenager.

The wonderkid becomes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first signing as United head coach, though he’s expected to start in the reserves before stepping-up to the first team.

Manchester United have plundered the Dutch market in recent years by signing players like Tahith Chong, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Millen Baars.

It’s part of the plan at the club to sign top talents before they reach first-team level so to avoid signings of the likes of Matthijs de Ligt, who the club want to sign for around £80m this summer window.
