Dream come true for teenager

Departing Crewe Alexandra starlet Nick Powell says signing for Manchester United is a dream come true.

The teenager has completed a move to the Premiership giants that could eventually net Alex up to 6m.

He scored sixteen goals last season, including the Wembley strike against Cheltenham Town in the play-off final.

"It really is a dream come true to be signing for Manchester United," Powell told BBC Stoke. "I have had a great time at Crewe and I would like to thank them for helping me to develop as a player over the past 13 years.

"I'm excited about continuing my development with Sir Alex and the world class players in the squad," he added. "The thought of making the step up to the Premier League next year is an exciting prospect. I can't wait to get started."

But there is no propsect of Powell making an immediate return to Gresty Road on loan.

"One thing I can confirm is that he won't be coming back here on loan," Alex manager Steve Davis admitted. "That wouldn't be part of it because we want to bring in a replacement of our own."
