​Preston complete move for Man Utd youngster Pearson

Championship side Preston North End have signed Manchester United midfielder Ben Pearson until 2018 for an undisclosed fee.

"We see him as energetic, box-to-box, likes a tackle and coming from Manchester United he is decent on the ball," boss Simon Grayson said.

"He's at the right age, wants to go and make a good career in the game and we are delighted that we have been backed by the owner to spend the money to bring Ben here."
