Man Utd defender Tyler Reid joins Swansea City


Highly talented Manchester United defender Tyler Reid has completed a permanent transfer to Swansea City.

The move has been announced on the official Manchester United website. The Old Trafford giants have not revealed the fee received from the Welsh club.

Reid has signed a three year contract with the Premier League outfit and is looking forward to playing in the first team more often.

The 18-year-old is highly rated by the Manchester United coaching staff, but the lack of first team action has forced the right back to consider a move away from Old Trafford this summer.

The young defender has been a crucial member of the United U21s side and scored a vital goal for his side during a 1-0 win over Sunderland in a championship-winning season. Reid was also a regular for the United under-18s and the Academy team defence. He also made four appearances in the UEFA Youth League.

After completing his move to Swansea, Reid said: “I am really looking forward to a fresh challenge and getting started. I see a good opportunity to play first-team football with the Development squad here. I can’t wait to get started. I want to make my mark, secure a starting place for the Development squad, and help make an impact this season.”
