Done Deal: Manchester United confirm defender transfer

Marnick Vermijl

Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed they have signed Manchester United defender Marnick Vermijl for an undisclosed fee on the final day of the winter transfer window.

The 20-times English champions confirmed the transfer on their official twitter account.

“Marnick Vermijl has joined Sheffield Wednesday for an undisclosed fee. All the best for the future, Marnick. #mufc” United tweeted.

A statement on the Owls’ official website read, ” Sheffield Wednesday have signed Manchester United defender Marnick Vermijl for an undisclosed fee. The Belgian has penned a three and a half year contract at Hillsborough. ”

“Vermijl, 23, is a highly rated prospect who was tipped for regular first team football by Sir Alex Ferguson.  Part of that glowing endorsement came on the back of Vermijl’s versatility – primarily a right back, the youngster is equally adept all the way across the rearguard.

“Vermijl has also represented Belgium at every level from Under-17s to Under-21s, earning 43 caps in total and scoring five times.  He will wear shirt number 36 for the Owls,” it added.
