DONE DEAL: Man Utd sign Rochdale defender Paul McShane

Manchester United have signed their former defender Paul McShane to play for and coach the club's Under-23s side.

The veteran centre-back, 35, recently left Rochdale, having obtained his coaching qualifications during his playing days - which are set to continue in an 'innovative' role.

McShane will both coach the team and take part in fixtures when 'deemed appropriate.'

The 33-times capped Republic of Ireland international's coaching will take place across the Under-15s to Under-23s teams.

He can play as one of three over-age players in matches, slots usually taken up by senior players who are seeking playing time.
