ANS Exclusive confirmed : Man Utd announce Nigerian fullback has signed scholarship deal

Through a statement on their official website, Premier League giants Manchester United have announced the new intake of academy players for the Professional Development Phase ahead of the 2022-2023 season.

 

Allnigeriasoccer.com exclusively reported thirty four days ago that Nigeria-eligible defender Habeeb Ogunneye has been offered a two-year scholarship by the Red Devils.

 

 

Manchester United have now confirmed the initial intake of academy scholars includes fourteen teenagers, with Ogunneye part of the group.

 

For the forthcoming season, the provisionally cap-tied England U17 international of Nigerian descent has been promoted to Manchester United U18 team on a permanent basis.

 

Ogunneye has already experienced U18 and U19 football last season, having made his debuts in the U18 Premier League and UEFA Youth League while still a schoolboy.

 

The Anglo-Nigerian is a modern day fullback as seen during his nine games in the 2021-2022 U18 Premier League where he provided assists against Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest, and forced an own goal in a 2-2 draw with Blackburn Rovers.

 

Ogunneye will be aiming to sign his first professional contract with Manchester United after his seventeenth birthday, which he celebrates on November 12, 2022.
