Six Manchester United youngsters have signed pro contracts.

Pierluigi Gollini, Tyler Blackett (pictured), Luke McCullough, Luke Hendrie and Tom Lawrence have all graduated from United's Academy set-up, while Reece James (younger brother of former Red Matty) signs following a successful trial period.

Blackett, Hendrie and McCullough were regulars for the Under-18s last term and featured heavily in the Reds' run to the FA Youth Cup semi-finals.

Goalkeeper Gollini and forward Lawrence, meanwhile, endured frustrating seasons due to injury, although both returned to full fitness before the end of the 2011/12 campaign.

James, who featured in the Under-18s' final game of last season, has previously spent time with Blackburn and Preston North End's Academies.
