Manchester United have named 11 first-year scholars who will be drafted into next season's Under-18s squad.

The young Reds have also signed from 1 July, although goalkeeper Jacob Carney was already part of last year's group as an Academy student.

There are three Manchester-born prospects in the intake - defender Teden Mengi, who made a couple of appearances for Kieran McKenna's side in 2017/18, plus midfielders Harvey Neville, son of ex-Red Phil, and Max Haygarth. Mark Helm is from Warrington - the birthplace of England star Jesse Lingard.

Two of the group are from overseas - goalkeeper Ondrej Mastny from the Czech Republic and wide midfielder Anthony Elanga, who hails from Sweden.

England Under-17s striker Mason Greenwood has the most experience of the squad, having already top scored for the Under-18s last season and also won Player of the Tournament at the ICGT competition in the Netherlands, that Ricky Sbragia's United side won in May.

Charlie McCann is a creative England Under-16s midfielder who arrived from Coventry City, with defenders Oliver Denham and Ben Hockenhull boys from the North West who have come through the system.

Meanwhile, Will Vint, an American-born midfielder, is also part of the Under-18s group and will travel with the rest of the squad to Austria next week for a pre-season training camp.
