Republic of Ireland Under-19 international Harvey Neville has signed his first professional contract with Manchester United.

The 18-year-old made his Ireland debut last October in The Showgrounds against Denmark.

He will aim to move up to the United Under-23 side after playing for the Under-18s since moving from Valencia's youth set-up in 2018

Neville said on Instagram: "Proud to have signed my first professional contract with Man Utd.

"Thank you to all my family and all my coaches for their support".

The Premier League giants opted to retain every player at Under-18 level this season due to the impact of Covid-19 on the transfer market. 

He has signed a one-year contract. 

Neville's father is former United player Phil. He is eligible for Ireland through his mother Julie.
