Aliou Traore is on his way to Manchester United, with the news being broken via a write-up on the club's official page, and then tweeted out by their verified Twitter account.
The 16-year-old made his United bow in a 3-2 defeat to Wolves on Saturday in the U18 Premier League Cup.
Formerly of Paris Saint-Germain, the teenager was given a trial in February and impressed the coaches in a 7-0 win rout of Burnley.
The former-Paris Saint-Germain midfielder signed a contract at Man United some months ago as part of a whole host of foreign signings into the academy sign during the summer.
The youngster turns 17 in January and will be available for the club's FA Youth Cup campaign which is scheduled to start on December 13 against Derby for the Red Devils.
Traore has been long targeted to join the camp of Manchester United.
He's a box-to-box midfielder who's been capped for the French under-16 side.
"Traore is a boy we have been looking at for a while", McKenna told MUTV.
Traore is just 16-years-old, and is a France youth worldwide. He is very strong technically and is improving all the time.
"He is a nice man and his English is improving".
Possessing a similar physique to his fellow countryman Pogba, the midfielder's powerful runs from the centre are deadly.
