Moyes eyes Dutch ace

Last Updated: Sun, 09 Mar 2014 12:23

Feyenoord midfielder Tonny Vilhena is reported to be on the wanted list of Manchester United boss David Moyes.

The Dutch U-21 international, who has worked his way through the youth ranks at Feyenoord, broke into the first team last season and has been an ever-present for the side in the current campaign.

Vilhena has weighed in with two goals and four assists in 24 appearances for the club, producing a number of eye-catching and composed performances for a player of such a young age.

The 19-year-old is claimed to be tracked by a host of top European clubs but it is United who are reportedly leading the race for the midfielder's signature.

Moyes is desperate to strengthen his faltering side and is said to be looking for midfield reinforcements to go along with January acquisition Juan Mata.

The Scot has also been linked with a move for Barcelona outcast Alex Song, but the focus of United's manager seems to be firmly on Vilhena and a summer bid for the Feyenoord youngster could be on the cards.
