Tom Heaton agrees two-year Man Utd deal on free transfer after Aston Villa release and set to sign contract next month
29th May 2021

TOM HEATON has agreed a two-year deal with Manchester United.

The 35-year-old goalkeeper left Aston Villa on a free transfer last Friday.


Heaton has jetted off on a ten-day family holiday but is set to sign terms at Old Trafford on his return.

United have offered three-cap England stopper Heaton a two-year deal plus the option of an extra 12 months.

The Red Devils have been on the hunt for another keeper, with the future of back-ups Lee Grant and Sergio Romero uncertain.

Heaton came through the ranks at United and was part of the squad between 2002 to 2010 but failed to make a first-team appearance.

Heaton tweeted on Friday night: "It has been an honour to play for Aston Villa Football Club.

"I would like to thank Dean and his management team, Christian and Johan.
