England midfielder Owen Hargreaves has revealed his relief at finally being able to call himself a Manchester United player after completing the formalities of his move from Bayern Munich.

The deal was agreed in principle back in May, but a four-year contract with the Barclays Premier League was not ratified until yesterday.

"It´s been a long time coming," the 26-year-old told his new club´s website. "It was probably the worst-kept secret in football, but it´s great to be here. I think it´s great to finally reach a positive conclusion - especially after all the time and energy that´s been put in from everyone involved!"
