Manchester United youngster Omari Forson is set to sign a new contract at the club.

Forson's contract with United expires at the end of the season, but the Manchester Evening News understands he's set to sign a new deal in recognition of his progression.

Sources have played down suggestions of negotiations hitting a stumbling block and he's set to put pen to paper.

Forson, who is yet to make his first-team debut, will be free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with overseas clubs in January, which means he's set to sign his new contract at United before the New Year.

Erik ten Hag named Forson in the first-team squad for the pre-season tour of the United States and he recently made the matchday squad that travelled to play F.C. Copenhagen in the Champions League.

Forson regularly trains with the first-team and he's highly regarded among coaching staff at Carrington, while there's a feeling he'll be the next academy product to be handed his senior debut.

The 19-year-old can play on the right wing, but he's predominantly played on the left in academy games this season and he's contributed seven goals and two assists in eight appearances.

Forson started his career in West Ham and Tottenham's academies and he joined United in January 2019.
