The 18-year old attacking midfielder has signed on the dotted line and will join United when the transfer window opens on July 1st. Powell has signed a four-year contract with us and becomes our second summer acquisition as SAF continues with his policy of getting business done early.
Sir Alex Ferguson has sung the praises of the youngster already:
“We have scouted Nick for months.” He said. “He’s an exceptional talent and has been schooled well at Crewe.”
“I’m delighted he has chosen to come to United. He has a lot to offer and we’re looking forward to working with him.”
The youngster shows that we will continue with our policy of developing talents, but i still feel we need one more signing in the shape of a world class midfielder.
Powell the had this to say:
“I’m excited about continuing my development with Sir Alex and the world-class players in the squad. The thought of making the step up to the Premier League next season is an exciting prospect. I can’t wait to get started.”
The news comes shortly after Sky Sports confirmed that the deal was ’90 percent done’, you can read about that here, as well as a video of his sublime goal in the play-off final.
