Manchester United are "confident" of clinching the signing of hot Cardiff City prospect Aaron Ramsey.

Everton and one other Premiership club - believed to be Liverpool - have also had offers accepted by Cardiff, but United have already held talks over personal terms with the 17 year-old.

United chief executive David Gill said: "I am confident."

Should everything go to plan, Ramsey will be loaned back to the Championship side next season.
