Man Utd move to beat Arsenal to Sunderland fullback Logan Pye

Manchester United and Arsenal are chasing Sunderland fullback Logan Pye.

The Sun says United will hand a five-year deal to Sunderland starlet Pye to see off interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal.

The 16-year-old is turning heads after some impressive displays for the Black Cats' youth teams, and now the Red Devils want to secure his signature as they look to build for the future.

Pye is seen as the next big thing at the Stadium of Light, although he has not yet been picked to play in the first team.

He is an England youth international having featured for the Under 16s - receiving his first call up at the age of just 14.

Pye has played 13 times for Sunderland's Under 18s this season, netting once and notching an assist.
