New Sheffield Utd signing Hassan Ayari commits to Tunisia

Hassan Ayari is delighted with his progress at Sheffield United.

The 17 year-old joined from the TW Braga academy in Belfast.

The attacking midfielder has already had a few training sessions with the first team and possesses good technique, dribbling and an eye for goal.

He told Tunisie-Foot: “I was really happy to join Sheffield United, a great club in England.

"It was a dream come true.

"I'm getting along with the team well and have made a lot of friends really quickly.

“My goals this season are to get the top goalscorer award in the whole academy and to try and play as many U23 games as possible.

"I also want us to go really far in the FA Youth Cup."

Born in New York to a Lithuanian mother and a Tunisian father, Ayari has committed internationally to Tunisia.
