Southampton and England defender Luke Shaw has signed for Manchester United for £27m, rising to £31m depending on success.

United initially made a bid of £27m for the 18-year-old left-back in May, but the offer was rejected.

Shaw told the Saints he wanted to move to United at the end of last season.

Shaw became the youngest player to feature at the 2014 World Cup when he played the full game in England's 0-0 draw with Costa Rica on Tuesday.

He is United's second summer recruit – and second in as many days – after they signed Spain midfielder Ander Herrera, 24, from Athletic Bilbao for a fee believed to be £29m.
