Eagles off to Holland

United midfielder Chris Eagles will spend the next four months overseas after signing for NEC Nijmegen on loan.

The Dutch club proved to be a successful destination for another young Red last season. David Jones spent the latter part of the campaign in Holland, scoring six goals in the process.

Eagles was also out on loan last season, firstly at Sheffield Wednesday and then at Watford where he joined United goalkeeper Ben Foster in Aidy Boothroyd's promotion-winning side. It was his second spell with the Hornets - he spent four months with them during 2004/05.
