Manchester United Under-18s coach Kieran McKenna has spoken to MUTV about his new recruits this summer.
The paperwork regarding Arnau Puigmal's move from Espanyol has been finalised, meaning the Spanish midfielder has officially become part of the squad.
"He played for Espanyol against our Under-16s at the Med Cup in the second half of last season," said McKenna. "He's a really dynamic, technical midfield player who likes to drive forward and carry the ball. He can handle the ball really well and seems a lovely young man too. His English is coming along and he's settling well, so I am sure he'll enjoy his time at the club."
Largie Ramazani also completed his switch from Charlton Athletic recently, and the winger is in contention to make his debut at Derby County on Saturday after being on the bench for the win over Stoke City.
"Largie is a tricky wide player who was with Charlton and likes to play on either side," said McKenna. "He is very two-footed and likes to score goals. He has a bubbly personality and usually has a smile on his face around the place. He is one of the younger ones but I am sure he can do very well."
Meanwhile, Dutch prospect Millen Baars received his clearance earlier in the summer and has already had a positive impact on the Under-18s team.
"Millen was waiting for quite a while as he's been training at the club," added McKenna. "He has had to wait for his clearance to come through but is a really physically impressive player. He is a wide player with a long stride and is really graceful in the way he moves. He strikes the ball well off both feet and we're working really hard to turn him into an effective game player. If we can do that, he's got such good talent."
