Manchester United look set to sign Stoke City keeper Lee Grant on a free transfer as their third choice keeper for next season, according to the Telegraph.
The 35-year-old produced a ‘Man of the Match’ performance for Stoke during a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford back in October 2016, making a series of remarkable saves.
He has enjoyed a fruitful club career, making over 500 appearances for a variety of clubs including Burnley, Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday.
And according to the Telegraph‘s Sam Wallace, Man United will bring Grant to the club on a one-year deal as Joel Pereira, the club’s third choice last term, leaves the club on loan.
News of United signing a player who wasn’t even good enough to start ahead of Scott Carson at Derby may not sit well with supporters, especially amid news of Marouane Fellaini receiving a new contract, but having a 35-year-old who doesn’t mind helping to put the cones out and keep the bench warm is better than delegating that role to Pereira, who needs game time next season.
