Belgian youngster Ilias Moutha-Sebtaoui has been given international clearance to play for Manchester United.
The 16-year-old goalkeeper joined Man United this summer but has up until this point been unable to feat for the U18s.
However, he’ll now be free to join the squad and will be excited to get his United career under way.
Like so many youngsters before him, Moutha-Sebtaoui was brought into the club’s academy and it’s a fantastic place for youngsters to hone their skills and develop.

Moutha-Sebtaoui hasn’t been able to play for United’s U18s but has been available for Belgium’s U16s, so at least he has had some competitive football this season.

The recent successes of Belgian born Adnan Januzaj and Andreas Pereira at United will serve as proof for Moutha-Sebtaoui that opportunities are there for the right youngsters, something he’ll be keen to replicate as he develops himself at United.
