Southend United Academy graduate Nathan Bishop has made the giant leap to Manchester United after agreeing a two-year deal.
The England Under-20 international was named in LFE’s ‘The 11’ back in March 2017 having combined impressive youth team performances with a commitment to study the Extended Diploma.
Having made his professional debut in December 2017, the young goalkeeper went on to amass 39 appearances for the Sky Bet League One side.
Bishop told Man United’s website: “The opportunity to join Manchester United is a dream come true. 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.
“I’ve loved every second at Southend. It was an honour to play for the club.”
