United new boy raring to go
Manchester United new boy Nick Powell has spoken of his delighted at his big money move from Crewe and can't wait to get started.
The highly-rated teenager completed his switch to the Premier League side on Tuesday for a fee thought to be in the region of £4m after enjoying a particularly impressive campaign last term to help the Railwaymen win promotion from League Two. Powell is expected to team-up with the Red Devils on their pre-season tour of South Africa and China although he may find himself loaned back soon afterwards to continue his footballing education. United are convinced the 18-year-old can fulfil his massive potential at Old Trafford after handing him a four-year contract and the player himself is determined to repay Sir Alex Ferguson's faith in him. "It really is a dream come true to be signing for Manchester United," said Powell. "I have had a great time at Crewe and would like to thank them for helping me to develop as a player over the past 13 years. "I'm excited about continuing my development with Sir Alex and the world-class players in the squad. The thought of making the step up to the Premier League next year is an exciting prospect. I can't wait to get started."
