EFL League Two club Coventry City have announced the outgoing transfer of England U16 international Charlie McCann to Manchester United.
The length of contract penned by the midfielder has not been disclosed by The Sky Blues, but his agreement with the Old Trafford outfit should not exceed three years if Fifa’s rules on the transfers of players under 18 years are followed.
”When a big football club come knocking, and it is the club that Charlie supports, you must let him go and have that experience,” Academy Manager Richard Stevens told Coventry City’s official website.
“We did not want to sell him, we did not need a fee for him even though there was a fee involved. He has been unbelievable for us, even making his England debut back in August.
“Charlie goes with complete support from me and the rest of the staff from the Academy.”
Charlie McCann had played nonstop at Coventry City since the age of seven before he agreed terms with the Red Devils.
