Transfers are being done at all levels of the Manchester club, as the Red Devils look to seal a deal for Brentford's 17-year-old winger Joshua Bohui.

Most stories concerning Manchester United and the transfer window at the moment concern their much-publicised pursuit of Paul Pogba.

This means that other deals the club are doing may slip under the radar, such as their move for Joshua Bohui.

The teenage forward was rewarded for his club form with a call-up to the England U17 squad early this year.

According to the Mirror, Bohui will sign a three-year contract that will see him join the United before the current academy season begins.

The 17-year-old was the top scorer in Brentford's academy last season, having signed a two-year scholarship deal after impressing with two strikes in 12 appearances for the Bees' youth outfit while just 15 years of age.

Director of the Brentford academy Ose Aibangee told the club's official website of the youngster in January: "Josh has been with us since he was 11 and we are really pleased for him.

"He has worked hard for this recognition (his call up to the England U17 squad) and it is great to see him achieve it.

"Seeing a Brentford player in an England squad alongside players from Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United is a massive reward for the work being done throughout the academy."
