Fulham beat Man Utd to signature of Irish teenage star Baba

Fulham have won the race to sign Irish teenage sensation Noe Baba ahead of competition from Manchester United, Sunderland and Celtic, reports the Daily Mail.

The 16-year-old defender opted for the London club after being convinced their recruitment and academy set-up would give him a better platform to progress.

The Cottagers will formalise details on Thursday and Baba, who has already passed a medical and agreed a contract, will join from January for a fee of around £130,000.

He was called into the Republic of Ireland Under 19 squad in October and can play centre-back, defensive midfield or full-back.
