Man Utd to confirm McClaren and Van der Gaag appointments

Manchester United are set to confirm finalised deals to bring Mitchell van der Gaag and Steve McClaren in as part of new manager Erik ten Hag's backroom staff.

Van der Gaag has been Ten Hag's right-hand man at Ajax since last year and helped the Dutch giants clinch the Eredivisie title for a third season in a row.

Meanwhile, former England national team boss McClaren had Ten Hag as his assistant manager back when they won the Dutch title with FC Twente in 2010.

And transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has now confirmed that the pair will be arriving to work with Ten Hag at Old Trafford.

Speaking on social media, he said: "Mitchell van der Gaag and Steve McClaren will be part of new Man United coaching staff, confirmed.

"Full agreement at final stages and set to be signed with both of them."
