The report further claimed that Bejger has been handed his international clearance and he is expected to join the club’s academy.

Bejger was in top form in August last year when he underwent a trial with United, with his versatility at the back impressing coaches present.

He came to the attention of United following the appointment of former Lech Poznan scout Piotr Sadowski.

Primarily a centre-back, Bejger can also play as a right-back, or can be used as a holding midfielder.

Bejger who marked his debut against Scotland last year has captained Poland since he became a regular.
