Manchester United finalising four-year contract for highly-rated English youngster

Manchester United are finalising the details for the transfer of youngster Harry Amass from Watford.

The 16-year-old will complete a move to M16 from the Championship side in the coming days, as confirmed by Fabrizio Romano.

Amass is highly rated in youth football and has received plaudits following his performances for both the U18s and U21s. He was included in Watford’s matchday squad for an FA Cup tie against Reading in January but finished the game as an unused substitute.

Now, he will depart his boyhood club after seven years and make the switch to the 20-time English champions.

As he is part of a scholarship deal that keeps him contracted to the Hornets until the age of 18, United will pay a compensation fee to complete the signing due to the Premier League’s Elite Player Performance Plan.

His club had also offered him a two-year contract to stay at Vicarage Road, but the lucrative offer of joining the Red Devils was impossible to turn down.

Amass to feature in international tournament

The full-back is expected to be a part of England’s squad for the U17 World Cup, which will kick off in November, so the Old Trafford faithful may want to keep an eye out to see their new academy prospect in action.
