The Liverpool-born 18-year-old underwent a lengthy trial at the AON Training Complex before the club finally signed him up.
While he failed to initially make it as a regular at the U-18 level, the Englishman used the two years of his scholarship to constantly improve and develop so that he would be good enough to make it for the U-23’s.
The starlet’s efforts have not gone unnoticed, and he has now been rewarded with a contract extension. He operates as a defensive midfielder, whose main focus is to act as a protective screen to Ricky Sbragia’s back line.
United made the announcement on their twitter page with a link to an article on their main website. The tweet read: “MUFC Under-23s midfielder Tom Sang is the latest player to commit his future to the club, after signing a new deal”.
