Sean McGinty signs for Man United
Manchester United have agreed a fee to sign Charlton Athletic and Ireland u17 international youngster Sean McGinty.
The Premier League giants have reportedly reached an agreement for a compensation package for the youngster, and now McGinty looks set to join the youth ranks at Old Trafford.
The 15-year-old was offered a scholarship at The Valley but has seemingly rejected it, and looks set to end his three-year stay with the club.
Maidstone-based McGinty joined the Addicks at the age of 12 and, despite his age, represented both Charlton's U18 side and reserves last season.
After several appearances for the U18s, McGinty made his first start for the second XI in a 1-0 defeat to Millwall at Stonebridge Road in April.
He then went on to feature in a 5-0 win over Southampton in a behind-closed-doors fixture at Sparrows Lane and also started a 2-0 triumph at Reading.
