Zidane Iqbal leaves Man Utd and joins Dutch side FC Utrecht

Manchester United trailblazer Zidane Iqbal has completed his move to FC Utrecht.

Academy graduate Iqbal, 20, has joined the Dutch outfit after they reached agreement with Man Utd over the transfer last week.

Iqbal made history in December 2021 when he appeared in the Champions League clash with Young Boys to become the first British South Asian to play for Manchester United. He is also thought to be the first Iraqi-heritage player to turn out for United.

The Mancunian appeared on United's Premier League bench on seven occasions last season after impressing during their pre-season tour as well as on their trip to Dubai during the mid-season break.

Iqbal, whose mother is Iraqi and father is Pakistani, spent more than a decade at United, starting out at one of the club's development squads before playing in every age-group and going on to represent the first team in the Champions League.
