Manchester United Sign Dutchman
Manchester United chief Sir Alex Ferguson has purchased Alexander Buttner from Eredivisie outfit Vitesse Arnhem for a transfer fee believed to be somewhere in the region of £4 million. The Dutch left fullback has been followed by several English Premier League clubs recently, including Fulham, Queens Park Rangers and Southampton.
Doetinchem born Alexander Buttner has made well over 100 first team appearances for Vitesse Arnhem since the precociously talented young defender arrived at the Eredivisie club at the beginning of the 2008-09 campaign. Reportedly, the much wanted youngster travelled to the United Kingdom on Sunday to undergo a medical at Manchester United on Monday. Alexander Buttner: “This is really a dream come true. It was all arranged very quickly and of course I am delighted. Happily everything is coming to an end.”
