Manchester United have reached a deal to sign defender Chris Smalling from Fulham.

The deal will see Smalling join the Old Trafford outfit in the summer and completes an astounding rise to prominence for a player who was in the non-league ranks with Maidstone two years ago.

Smalling has caught the eye with some excellent performances in the Cottagers' Europa League campaign this season and despite making only nine first-team appearances, Sir Alex Ferguson views the 20-year-old Londoner as having the talent to make a big impact on the game.

United are refusing to state how long Smalling, who will complete the remainder of the season at Fulham, has signed his contract for.
