Manchester United's Gomes pens professional contract
Manchester United youngster Angel Gomes has penned his first professional deal with the Premier League club.
London-born Gomes, 17, has been involved in United's academy system since the age of six and made his first-team debut at Old Trafford against Crystal Palace on the final day of the 2016-17 campaign.
And Gomes, who was part of the England Under-17s' World Cup-winning side, is determined to grasp the opportunity.
"Manchester United has always been a big part of my life," he told the club's official website.
"It was a proud moment for me when I made my first team debut. This club is renowned for giving home grown players opportunities to progress into the first team and that was a major factor in me signing my first professional contract at this great club."
