Man United Sign Lee Grant From Stoke City

Lee Grant looks set to join Manchester United on a free transfer

He will be Man United's third signing of the summer, along with Brazilian Fred and Diego Dalot from Porto.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is understood to be keen on making the 35-year old as the third-choice keeper at the Old Trafford, as back up for David De Gea and Sergio Romero.

Mourinho has previously heaped praise on the Portuguese by stating that he is one of his country's best goalkeepers of the present generation and Pereira is now due to be granted his wish to enjoy a full season of competitive action.

He made 28 Premier League appearances for Stoke during the 2016-17 season, including a fantastic performance in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

United also bade farewell to Sam Johnstone this week after the 25-year-old completed a £6.5 million switch to West Bromwich Albion.

"Manchester United is delighted to announce the signing of Lee Grant on a two-year deal", United announced on their official website on Tuesday.

United boss Jose Mourinho wants to let Portugal Under-21 global Joel Pereira go out on loan for the season.

After beginning his career at Derby, the former England under-21 global has also spent time at Burnley, Oldham and Sheffield Wednesday.

Grant told ManUtd.com after signing: "Moving to Manchester United has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember". But at the same time, I intend to use my experience to help the team whenever possible.

The former England Under-21 worldwide has made 508 appearances.
