Sir Alex Ferguson is very pleased that United have managed to land Alexander Buttner from Vitesse Arnhem and says it gives the team "really exciting options" down the left.

The 23-year-old became the club’s fourth summer after signing a five year deal following the earlier arrivals of Robin van Persie, Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell.

Fergie believes he will be a great acquisition: “Alexander is one of the best young left backs in Europe and we’re delighted to sign him. He’s someone we’ve been watching for a while now. He gives us some really exciting options in that position,” the United boss said.

Meanwhile, the defender himself cannot wait to make his United debut.

He said: “It’s a team I have admired for many years now and I can’t wait to join my team-mates and play my part in helping the club be successful.”
