The Swans announced on Monday the signing of midfielder George Byers from Watford on a three-year deal, as they look to snap up the best young talent on the market, and they have now confirmed Reid’s arrival.

The 18-year-old has agreed a three-year deal and is set to link up with the club’s development squad ahead of their pre-season tour to Scotland later this month.

Right-back Reid joined United from Arsenal’s youth ranks in 2012 but did not feature for the first team, prompting him to leave Old Trafford in the hope of featuring for the senior side at the Liberty Stadium.

“I am really looking forward to a fresh challenge and getting started,” he told Swansea’s official website.

“I see a good opportunity to play first-team football with the development squad here. Swansea play good attractive football, and I think that suits my style of play.

“I see myself as a quick, strong and powerful player who likes to get forward. I hope I can offer something both in attack and defence.”
