With Manchester United set to confirm the signing of Daley Blind from Ajax, here’s ten facts the club’s fans should know about their latest summer signing…

1) He’s the son of Danny Blind – former Ajax and Netherlands defender who has also managed the Amsterdam club and is currently assistant to Dutch national coach Guus Hiddink

2) A product of Ajax’s youth academy, he made his debut for the club all the way back in December 2008, when he was just 18 years old.

3) He’s a highly versatile player – Blind has played left-back, left wing-back, centre-back and defensive midfield for club and country, and could be a useful signing for the Red Devils in any one of those positions.

4) He’s won four league titles in a row – although the Premier League is far more competitive than the Eredivisie, United can at least say they are signing an experienced winner with this transfer.

5) He was voted Dutch Footballer of the Year for 2014 and was also Ajax’s player of the year for the 2012/13 season.
