World News – GB – Deji Sotona signs for Nice after rejecting Man United contract


Man Utd received a blow at youth level when Irish striker Deji Sotana rejected a new contract at the club

Deji Sotona has agreed to join the French side of OGC Nice after rejecting a new long-term contract with Manchester United

MEN Sport reported earlier this month that Sotona turned down the offer of a three-year professional contract because he wanted a weekly salary of just under five figures

The Republic of Ireland youth international is believed to also wanted the guarantee of a promotion to the first team this season and didn’t see that happen if he stayed at United

Nice announced they had reached a deal for Sotona on Wednesday afternoon and issued a statement citing their joy in landing the young striker

« OGC Nice is delighted to welcome an element with great potential who will join Patrick Vieira’s squad this season, » says the club’s official press release

Sotona made 11 starts and 11 substitutes for the Under-18s last season and scored the winner in their FA Youth Cup quarter-final victory over Wigan at Old Trafford

His exit from Old Trafford leaves United short of options at youth level this season with Anthony Elanga the only striker available for Neil Wood at reserve level

Joe Hugill, 16, who signed for the summer, has already been promoted to the Under-21 side and started for them in the penalty shoot-out victory over Rochdale in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday night
