Manchester United midfielder Tosin Kehinde will play for the U21 team of the Old Trafford side in the 2016-2017 season.
The official website of the Red Devils has disclosed that Kehinde will step up to the U21 squad in the forthcoming season.
The Lagos-born player made his debut for Manchester United U21s as a 16-year-old back in the 2013-2014 season, when he lasted five minutes on the pitch in their 3-0 win against Wolves at the Molineux Stadium.
Tosin Kehinde would have broken into the team earlier but his progress was hampered by the back injury he suffered during the 2014-2015 season.
The 18-year-old appeared 27 times for Manchester United U18s last season and was on target against Wolfsburg in the UEFA Youth League.
It remains to be seen if he would debut for the first team in Saturday’s friendly against Wigan Athletic, with manager Jose Mourinho strongly hinting that some Academy players will be given a run out at the DW Stadium.
