Southend United goalkeeper, Nathan Bishop, is close to signing a new deal with Manchester United before Friday’s transfer deadline, according to BBC Sport.
Bishop is expected to join up with Man United’s development squad should the Red Devils finalise an agreement this month.
The England Under-20 international broke into Southend’s first-team back in 2017.
He has made 17 appearances in all competitions for Southend this season.
The 20-year-old has struggled for game-time in recent weeks for Sol Campbell’s side.
He was left out of Southend’s 3-1 defeat to Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday.
Speaking on Bishop’s situation, Southend manager, Sol Campbell confirmed that the shot-stopper was set for a medical at another club.
He said: “He’s having a medical. I don’t know where but if he passes the medical he’s gone.”
