Ramazani signs first pro contract with United

Wednesday 21 March 2018 14:00

Exciting prospect Largie Ramazani has become the latest Manchester United youngster to sign professional terms with the club.

The summer arrival from Charlton Athletic has helped Kieran McKenna's vibrant Under-18 side to reach the top of the Premier League North this season, by bringing his unique brand of skill and flair to the attack.

The wide man scored in both league games against one of the Reds' title rivals, Everton, and also claimed a cracker in the win at Stoke City.

An Under-17 international with Belgium, Ramazani now hopes to build on a promising start to life in Manchester.

Congratulations on your contract, Largie.

ANALYSIS's Adam Marshall...

"There is little doubt United's Under-18s deserve to be leading the northern table as we approach the climax to the campaign. Kieran McKenna is taking his squad to Texas for the Dallas Cup and, when they return, three games stand between the Reds and the title. Despite a seven-point lead at the summit, success is still not guaranteed.

"Largie has performed well all campaign and deserves his professional contract, but picking out individuals is not only difficult but would be unfair on something that has been very much a team effort. Most of the squad will be available at this level next season, even if they will hope to gain promotion to the Under-23s, like Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes and, most recently, Ethan Laird have managed this year. It's an exciting time for the Academy."
