New Manchester United signing Altay Bayindir has pledged to ‘fight’ for the club, after clinching his move.

Altay Bayindir was unveiled on transfer deadline day, replacing Dean Henderson, who signed for Crystal Palace.

Bayindir becomes Manchester United’s first ever Turkish player, signing from Fenerbahce for a fee of £4.3 million.

He is training with the squad already, and is expected to be on the bench to face Arsenal at the weekend, backing up Andre Onana.

Bayindir happy to sign

Altay Bayindir sent a message to Manchester United supporters, expressing his excitement to see fans at Old Trafford.

United’s first home game is against Brighton after the international break, but Bayindir is expected to make his debut when United begin their Carabao Cup defence against Crystal Palace in late September.

He wrote on Instagram: “Hello Red Devils! I can’t wait to meet you at Theatre of Dreams. I am aware of the greatness of this club and I will fight till the bitter end to be worthy of this jersey. United for the Glory! @manchesterunited.”

Bayindir in the squad

Bayindir’s arrival has pleased manager Erik ten Hag, who was quizzed about the new arrival at his press conference.

The Manchester United manager said: “We followed him, scouted him very intensely and we think he has the skills to fit in Man United, to fit in English football.

“So, we are really glad that we signed him and we are confident that he will make a lot of progress in the coming period in the coming years and he will be a huge contribution to our game.”
