Manchester United completed the second signing of the summer: promising defender Sean McGinty joins the ranks of talented youngsters at Old Trafford. The young Irishman wasn’t contracted to Charlton but a compensation package has been agreed between the clubs.

“Of course, nothing would have made us happier than Sean coming through the ranks and representing our first team, and our coaches had high hopes for him,’ said Charlton chairman Richard Murray.

‘We did our utmost to persuade him to stay, but joining such a big Premier League club is obviously an attractive prospect, and Sean and his family made it clear that they wanted to move north to United.”

Murray added: “Manchester United have behaved entirely honourably throughout the process, and I`d like to thank them for that.”


Welcome, Sean, good luck for the future!
