Manchester United have secured the signature of Slovakian wonderkid Martin Svidersky, fending off competition from six clubs in doing so.
The 15-year-old has been on a journey around Britain, Germany, and Italy in recent weeks, as he attempted to find a club where he could take himself to the next level.
The Slovakian youngster had been at Presov, a club in his native country, and will now move to United after agreeing a three-year deal with the club that will run up to 2021.

Svidersky is impressively fluent in English, and can also speak French, German, Greek, and his mother tongue – Slovakian. The youngster is a midfielder, and is expected to join up with United’s U-18 side, managed by Kieran McKenna, in the upcoming season.
He isn’t the only Slovakian on United’s books at the moment, with 18-year-old goalkeeper Alex Fojticek also joining the club’s ranks.
United have been undergoing a massive recruitment drive since 2016, spearheaded by former academy graduate Nicky Butt – a member of the legendary Class of ’92.
His appointment has seen new life breathed into the academy, with a host of new youngsters joining the club, as the Red Devils look to re-establish themselves as one the best in the world.
Manchester United are desperate to earn back that title, after their U-23 side was embarrassingly relegated to Premier League 2 earlier this month.
