Man Utd sign 15-year-old defender Harrison Parker from Arsenal after impressing on trial

MANCHESTER UNITED have snapped up highly-rated centre-back Harrison Parker following his summer exit from Arsenal.

The 15-year-old impressed during his trial for the Red Devils which saw himfeature for their youth side in Northern Ireland.

And United have now handed the teenager a contract, with Parker taking to social media to show him signing his deal.

He even uploaded a picture of him holding up the United shirt with his name and No5 on the back.

In an Instagram post, he said: "Excited to have officially signed for Manchester United.

"The new chapter starts and the hard work continues."

Parker also thanked the Gunners after calling time on his nine-year spell in North London.

The England youth international remarked: "After nine brilliant years at Arsenal I have finally decided to end my journey with them as it’s time for a new chapter.


"I am grateful for all the time and experiences they have given me to help me become the player I am today. Those memories will last forever.

"Also, [I would] like to say a thank you to all the staff and coaches that have helped me on my journey so far. Forever grateful."

United are also reportedly keen to add another 15-year-old to their ranks with the club keeping tabs on Ghanaian starlet Mizak Asante.

The exciting youngster scored a wonder solo goal for Golden Kick SC on Sunday which could be in the running to win the 2021 Fifa Puskas Award.

And the club's chairman Joseph Epton has revealed that four clubs are interested in the player.

Speaking to Accra radio station Onua FM via Ghana Soccer Net, he said: "Before Mizak scored this goal we had already showed his highlights – and those of other players – to clubs abroad.

"But he was the only player we had feedback about.

"It has come from Manchester United, Manchester City, Juventus and Genk."
