Manchester United youngster Harvey Neville has signed a professional contract with the club.
Neville is the son of former United star Phil Neville, who made 386 first team appearances for the Red Devils.
Harvey Neville just turned 18 in late June and he has now put pen to paper on a new deal.
Following in successful footsteps
Harvey Neville plays as a right-back like his uncle Gary, who made 602 appearances for United.
He has been a regular for the under-18s this past year, making 11 appearances.
He also featured in the FA Youth Cup as a substitute in the win over Lincoln, and featured in an under-19s friendly against Club Brugge alongside James Garner and Tahith Chong.
Neville is in a tough spot as right-back is one of the strongest positions in United’s first team, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Ethan Laird all in front of him.
He will also have expected new signing from Barcelona Marc Jurado to compete with.
The first challenge for Neville will be to try and make an impression in the under-23s if he gets opportunities.
If he applies the same kind of commitment to his career that Phil and Gary did, then he has a real shot.
