Premier League giants Manchester United have agreed to sell academy graduate Noam Emeran to Eredivisie side FC Groningen.
According to Manchester Evening News writer Richard Fay, the 20-year-old is being allowed to leave the club despite impressing for the Red Devils during pre-season including a goal against Leeds in a friendly played out in Norway last month.
Noam Emeran set to leave Red Devils
Since arriving from French club Amiens in 2019, the forward has impressed at youth team level without making a senior appearance in a competitive match for Erik Ten Hag’s men.
According to reports, there were a number of clubs interested in taking the young Frenchman out on loan this summer but a permanent move to Groningen is likely to provide Emeran the best opportunity to develop and play as many first-team minutes as possible.
United have also included a sell-on clause in the deal which means they stand to benefit financially if Emeran goes on to have a successful season elsewhere.
