Manchester United are set to complete their first signing of the January transfer window after teenage star Noam Emeran agreed to join the club.

Juventus and PSG have both previously been linked with a move for Emeran, however the young striker has confirmed that he will complete a move to Old Trafford in due course, as reported by the Manchester Evening News.
