Manchester United have agreed a deal with Dutch champions FC Twente that will allow the club to send youngsters as well as foreign signings without work permits there on loan according to RTV Oost.

Like Chelsea, who had similar deals with PSV Eindhoven, Twente and now Vitesse Arnhem, this could be extremely beneficial especially when you consider defender Slobodan Rajkovic who gained a European passport during his extended stay in Holland.

United had a similar deal with Antwerp with the likes of John O’Shea, Darron Gibson, Jonny Evans and Dong all spending time in Belgium in an effort to develop their game/gain a work permit but FC Twente seems an altogether better option, even if the standard of football in Holland isn’t what it was as learning your game as a youngster in Holland can’t but help your development.
