Manchester United are close to finishing the signing of Stoke goalkeeper, Lee Grant, according to Manchester Evening News.

The 35-year-old Grant, who also played for Derby County will join the Old Trafford outfit as third-choice goalkeeper with his playing time expected to be a bare minimum when finally signed.

His professionalism is expected to be a boost to the club’s dressing room. With the further option of a coaching role on the cards for the former Sheffield Wednesday man.
