Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is confident of closing a deal for Ajax utility Daley Blind.

United confirmed on Saturday morning they had agreed a fee with Ajax for the versatile 24-year-old.

Blind is expected to fly to Manchester to agree personal terms and undergo a medical before Monday's 11pm transfer deadline.

Van Gaal, who has already signed four players this summer, said after the 0-0 draw at Burnley: "He'll come to Manchester to have a medical, and then we might have a new player."

The deal to bring Blind to Old Trafford is thought to be worth around £14million.
