Manchester United are set to win the race to sign Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne, according to the Express.
The England international, who has been linked with a move to a number of the Saints’ Premier League rivals in recent weeks, has been valued by his club at around £17m – a fee United are ready to meet.
Should the move materialise, it would see the former Crystal Palace man reunite with former teammate and fellow full-back Luke Shaw, who himself swapped St Mary’s for Old Trafford last summer.
Since signing from Palace, the twenty-four year old has racked up ninety-seven appearances in all competitions for Southampton, scoring five goals while he made his international debut in England’s 3-1 friendly win over Scotland back in November.
Southampton beat Hull City 2-0 on Saturday to keep themselves in the hunt for European football next season, with the club currently sitting just a point behind fifth place Liverpool and five behind Champions Manchester City in fourth.
