Feyenoord have burned off competition from Manchester United to secure Antoni Milambo to a new deal.

The 15 year-old has resisted serious interest from United to commit his future to Feyenoord.

Milambo won't turn 16 until next April, but will be a member of the U18 Feyenoord team after penning a three-year contract.

"If I succeed, I want to become a real Feyenoord first team player. I live near Lutsharel Geertruida, he has already walked this road. I talk to him sometimes. He says I have to work hard and have patience. I listen to him carefully," said Milambo.

“Physically I still have to grow, I play weekly against boys who are all older. But that is a good learning experience and I need it to get where I ever want to be: in a full Kuip."
