Two Nigerian Wonderkids Eligible To Play For Manchester United In The Premier League

Manchester United have submitted their Premier League squad list following the close of the summer transfer window.

All Premier League teams had until 4pm on September 1 to submit their 25-man roster for the 2017-2018 season, and the list must contain no more than 17 players who do not fulfill the “Home Grown Player” (HGP) criteria.

United States youth international of Nigerian descent Matthew Olosunde and the Lagos-born midfielder Tosin Kehinde have been included in Manchester United’s Premier League roster as U21 players.

The Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho has elected not to name U16s stars Michael Elechi, Ademipo Odubeko, Ayodeji Sotona and Shola Shoretire in the roster.

All six of the aforementioned teenagers have yet to debut for Manchester United in the English top-flight.
