Manchester United have completed the signing of Nathan Bishop from Southend United, the club have confirmed.

Bishop becomes United’s second signing of the January window and is likely to bring to a close the club’s transfer business this month.

The 20-year-old signs a two-and-a-half-year contract and said becoming a Red Devil was a dream come true.

‘The opportunity to join Manchester United is a dream come true,’ Bishop told the club website.

‘This club has a great record of developing goalkeepers and I cannot wait to work with the coaches here to improve every single day.

‘I want to take the chance to thank everyone at Southend United for everything they have done for me throughout my time there.



‘Without their support, this move would not have been possible.’

Bishop has made 17 appearances for Southend this season, but recently lost his place in the starting team to Mark Oxley.

The talented stopper has featured for the England Under-20’s and the transfer comes hot on the heels of the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, who joined in a big-money deal on Thursday.

Asked if he would be signing a striker on deadline day, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer played down the possibility of any incomings before the 11pm deadline.

‘I don’t think we’ll do any more business. January has always been difficult.

‘It’s not something you do just like that. I am happy with the ones I have here.’
