Following the announcement, U18s coach Kieran McKenna told MUTV the club had been looking at the youngster "for a while".

"He's really a strong midfielder who likes to run from one penalty box to the other, he's very technically strong and still growing", McKenna said. "He's settling well with the other boys and has taken to the club really well".

Traore has a play style similar to Paul Pogba.

Traore turns 17 in January and will be available for United's FA Youth Cup campaign which starts on December 13 against Derby.
