Luke Shaw having Man United medical

Luke Shaw was one of Southampton's star players last season.

Luke Shaw is close to completing his transfer from Southampton to Manchester United and has been given permission to complete a medical with the Old Trafford club, sources have told ESPN FC.

Shaw, 18, has been heavily linked with a move to United for the past six months, with ESPN FC reporting in January that the Red Devils failed in an attempt to sign the player in the last transfer window.

United now appear to have got their man, though reports of a 34 million pound deal for Shaw in some British newspapers earlier this week appear to be wide of the mark, with the initial fee is expected to be much lower than that.

The overall package was however, described by ESPN FC sources at Southampton as "too good to turn down" for a player who has played just 60 Premier League games in total and collected three senior international caps for England.

Shaw's move to United completes a rapid rise for the latest graduate to emerge from Southampton's celebrated academy, following Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain by moving to a big club after making his name at Southampton.

While the news will come as a blow to Southampton fans, new manager Ronald Koeman has been told he will be able to spend the cash recouped from the sale of star players as he looks to develop the squad he has inherited from Mauricio Pochettino.

Shaw's imminent arrival at United comes hours after they confirmed the capture of Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao.
