Manchester United's reported new signing is (predictably) being likened to Marouane Fellaini

Manchester United appear to have secured the services of highly-rated Feyenoord youngster, Tahith Chong.

According to reports in The Netherlands, the 16-year-old is Old Trafford-bound, with United having seen off competition from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City for his signature.

Mikos Gouka, journalist for Dutch newspaper AD, confirmed the deal earlier on Tuesday.

Soon after the news began to circulate on Twitter, the talented Dutch youngster was already being compared to current United midfielder player employee Marouane Fellaini.

Thankfully for young Tahith, the comparisons were nothing to do with his ability to play football.
