Manchester United are reportedly closing in on the £1m signing of 17-year-old Rochdale midfielder Daniel Adshead.

Manchester United are reportedly close to completing a £1m deal for Rochdale teenager Daniel Adshead.

The 17-year-old broke into the Rochdale first team last season, making eight appearances across all competitions, the majority of which came in the EFL Trophy.

A number of Premier League and Championship sides are thought to be monitoring the youngster's progress, and The Mirror reports that United are now on the verge of completing a deal.

Adshead featured for Rochdale during a behind-closed-doors friendly with United's Under-23s at Carrington last week, putting in a man-of-the-match display which impressed United youth boss Nicky Butt.

The midfielder became Rochdale's youngest-ever player on his debut last season, turning out in an EFL Trophy match against Bury just 17 days after his 16th birthday.
