Transfer window: Man Utd agree €17m deal for Feyenoord left-back Malacia

Manchester United have a €17m (£15.7m) deal in place to sign Feyenoord’s left-back Tyrell Malacia after hijacking Lyon’s attempt to buy the 22-year-old Netherlands international.

Lyon had a verbal agreement for Malacia of €12m plus €3m in add-ons and were waiting for the player to travel for a medical and sign a contract but on Monday night United jumped in.

They had a proposal accepted of €15m plus €2m in add-ons and Feyenoord’s technical director, Frank Arnesen, was quoted by the Feyenoord news site as saying: “The agreement is there. We are now waiting for Tyrell. If he says yes, then a transfer to Manchester United is imminent.” West Ham also made a late attempt to sign Malacia.
