A lot of people don't know the name Saidy Janko very well - yet.

But a true Manchester United fan should be fully aware of this name, as the young man is expected to make an impact in the upcoming years for the reigning Premier League champions.

Janko was brought to United this summer on the last day of the transfer market, along with Marouane Fellaini.

United paid £700,000 for the defender to his former club FC Zurich.

Janko impressed Reds representatives at this year's FIFA Blue Stars tournament when he played against United.

Saidy was born in Switzerland, but has a Gambian father and a Swiss/Italian mother.

Janko has, up until this point, been ineligible to play due to a lack of international clearance, but is expected to make a debut for the under-19's squad on Wednesday against Real Sociedad. 

Former United product and now head coach of United's youth squad, Nicky Butt, is delighted that he will have a chance to use Janko in the upcoming game.

“He is available and in contention," Butt told ManUtd.com. "He played against England Under-19s last week on the right-hand side. He’s a good talent and we’re all excited about him. He has good presence and goes about the game the right way.”

Saidy Janko is definitely one of the players to keep an eye on in the upcoming years.
