The Red Devils are back into news! The English giants have reportedly signed a 17 year old talent who has formerly played at Arsenal and Fulham. The lad goes by the name of Darren Junior Buffonge and as popularly known as DJ Buffonge. The 1998 born English player DJ, went on trial with United at the start of the season.
Darren signed a scholarship deal with United and penned down a deal nearly a week ago. The club statement claimed,
DJ Buffonge has signed as a scholar for Manchester United following a successful trial. The former Fulham prospect started the season in the Under-18 team and set up Zak Dearnley’s goal in the opening fixture at West Brom. However, a groin injury sustained in a 3-2 win over Derby County in late August cut short his progress. Despite the setback, United’s coaches had seen enough to complete a deal on 13 November for the creative midfielder.”
It is believed that this teenage sensation is an energetic midfielder and was at Arsenal’s academy before making a move to Fulham. He is pacy and is a good holder of the ball. A move to the English giants will surely develop him in a better player as time passes.
