Woolston looks a promising young talent and United fans will be glad to see the club have more options between the sticks after the recent worrying developments involving David de Gea.

As Sky Sports report, United have triggered the option to hold on to De Gea for another year, but they face a struggle to hold on to him for any longer than that.

Reports from i News also suggest United are preparing for life without the Spanish shot-stopper by targeting Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak and Everton’s Jordan Pickford.

Woolston is unlikely to be ready to make such a big step up into the first-team any time soon, but for now he’s glad to be a United player.

See below for his tweet as he confirmed he’d joined ‘the biggest club in the world’.
