LONDON (AFP) - Manchester United have reached an agreement to sign Dutch international forward Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven, the English Premier League giants announced on Thursday.

"#mufc has reached an agreement with PSV Eindhoven and Memphis Depay for the player's transfer, subject to a medical," United announced on their official Twitter account.

"Pending the successful completion of the medical, the deal will go through once the transfer window opens in June."

Depay, who has scored 49 goals in 122 appearances for PSV, will reportedly cost United around £22 million (S$44 million). United did not disclose the length of his contract.

The 21-year-old played under United manager Louis van Gaal at last year's World Cup in Brazil, scoring two goals as the Netherlands reached the semi-finals.
