REVEALED: Man Utd signing Derby teen trio

Manchester United are signing three prospects from Derby County.

The Athletic reports United are close to completing deals for three Derby County academy players.

United are set to sign the three youngsters, all under the age of 15, from the Championship club for around £750,000.

Derby are happy to sell and forgo the usual compensation rulings because they are desperate for cash to help their fading takeover by Bin Zayed International.

The report states Derby manager Wayne Rooney was asked his opinion on the youngsters, but it was club scouts who made the final decision.
