Cape Town - Southampton and England defender Luke Shaw is expected to sign for Manchester United.

United made a bid of £27 million for the 18-year-old left-back in May, but the offer was rejected.

BBC Radio Solent now confirm that a fee in the region of £31 million including add-ons has been agreed upon between the Saints and the Red Devils which paves the way for Shaw to move to Manchester.

The Guardian are reporting that Shaw's medical has already been completed.

Shaw became the youngest player to feature at the 2014 World Cup when he played the full game in England's 0-0 draw with Costa Rica on Tuesday.

Shaw will become the second signing to join Louis Van Gaal's Manchester United revolution after United confirmed the signing of Spain midfielder Ander Herrera, 24, from Athletic Bilbao for a fee believed to be £29 million.

Shaw becomes the second high profile departure after Liverpool signed Rickie Lambert just before the start of the Soccer World Cup.
