Rumours had been circling around the internet for a few weeks that United were on the tail of sixteen year old Dutch winger Gyliano van Velzen. Reports in Holland today suggest that the deal has been completed, and van Velzen practically confirmed it through social networking site Twitter.
Van Velzen is a left footed left winger and is a product of the Ajax youth academy that in recent years has produced stars such as Edwin van der Sar, Clarence Seedorf, Edgar Davids and Frank and Ronald de Boer.
Though little is known about van Velzen at the moment there is a video link of him playing a couple of years ago at the end of this article. He looks to have a neat touch and good pace. And he absolutely towers over the other lads he’s up against.
Hopefully the boy will progress and become a first team player for the future and not just another youngster brought in and sold within a few years.
