Versatile Dutch international Daley Blind is set to join Manchester United after the English Premier League side agreed a deal with Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam.

#mufc has reached agreement with Ajax to sign Daley Blind, subject to a medical and personal terms." the club tweeted on Saturday, adding a further announcement will be made when the process is complete.

Prior to this, news reports had surfaced that Daley Blind`s agent was unaware that Manchester United had yet to table a bid to sign his client.

The Ajax utility player has been reported as a target for Louis van Gaal, who knows Blind from his time in charge of the Dutch national side that finished third at this year`s World Cup in Brazil. But Rob Jansen, Blind`s agent, told Britain`s talkSPORT radio that United had yet to make an approach to bring Blind to Old Trafford.

"At this moment Manchester United have not been in touch with me or Ajax about Daley and I`m not sitting here waiting for the call," Jansen said. Blind, 24, the son of former Dutch star Danny Blind, can play at left-back or central midfield, an area where United would appear to need strengthening if they are to re-emerge as title contenders following last season`s shock seventh-place finish in the Premier League.
