Manchester United have completed the signing of goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic from Serbian club FK Vojvodina.

The two clubs agreed a deal for the 17-year-old Serbian back in May, and the transfer has now been finalised.

Milinkovic will remain with FK Vojvodina for the forthcoming season.

The Serbian club's president Zoran Scepanovic said: "After lengthy talks that have taken place over the past month, we have finally completed negotiations on Monday and we can officially inform the public that our young and promising goalkeeper has joined Manchester United.

"He will remain in Vojvodina for the next year, where he will be under the supervision of our experts and coaches from the English football giants, while continuing to train and perform in the jersey of his home club. This is an opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the realisation of this transfer. Can I point out Manchester United's very correct attitude."

United have also signed Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw this summer.
