    Seems we've signed him from Ajax, He's a winger. Read about him about 2-3 weeks ago, but the rumours died down, but it looks like he's signed with us. Remember reading in an Ajax forum, the fans weren't too worried about him leaving them though!

    I remember this last month, something was written on Facebook in Dutch or something saying he'd joined us. Ajax's youth academy is incredible. He's probably good, lets face it, we wouldn't have signed him if he wasn't.

    He was 14 here. He looks massive. Good skill and strength.

    A Left WInger, Academy does lack wingers, especially with Robbie Brady now moving up to reserves

    Just saw the team news on twitter, Lingard seems too small and light weight to me, he's quick and versatile, been played up front and in midfield too...i doubt he'll make it, hasn't got many chances though..lets see this season

    3-2 win after being 2-0 down. The U18s have definitely got that United mentality of never say die.

    As per the spokesperson we haven't but i don't think we can believe what he says, Ajax asking for Settlement seems positive, better than Le Havre who went ballistic from day 1!!

    There aren't any rules over signing European youngsters at the moment. It's up to the player where they want to be.

    Massive isn't he. He's 16 now, wonder if he's grown... still growing... Bebe and this kid on the wing in a few years, it'll be like watching Rugby. Two Jonah Lomu's running down the wing.

    I don't like really tall wingers, they seem awkward when they run! :lol:
    Prefer shorter guys, like RIbery, shorter guys are more agile and turn quicker i think??

    He is only 14 in the video, 14 year olds don't run like professionals. Even 18 year olds.

    Ronaldo was pretty tall. Suppose you could class him as a Striker aswell though. I still believe the reason Tosic didn't make it was because he was so short.

    i think Tosic's main weakness was his build, wish he was given a chance.

    I hope Bebe doesn't end up the same!

    Giggs isn't exactly short. Beckham neither. I think the reason Van Velzen looks so tall is because the others are so short in the video.

    i meant in comparison to people like Van Velzen and Obertan, their height seems normal..didn't mean you have to be short to be good... Van Velzen is almost 6' 1" already!!

    seems he didn't have a contract with Ajax, so they don't have much of a case against us

    I think he'll be involved this season for the U18s. Would like to see some newer video of him. He looked good when he was 14, wonder what he's like 2 years on.

    his trnsfer hasn't been confirmed by Fifa yet i think, something similar to the Fornasier, masacci and Pogba deals, will have to wait a while..

    Kenji Gorre very highly rated guy, Chelski tried to steal him from us last year!! but he stayed, supposed to be very talented, already made a few appearances for the U-18's i think, along with Barmby and Pearson, they are the best attacking talents coming through the academy in the next 2 years

    Van Velzen played for the U18s tonight behind closed doors against Preston apparently.

    Signed professionally now. Big future if he can realise his potential.

    thought he played well against Sheffield United. Lacks the final ball but he's been getting better every game. People have no patience, everyone can't be like Pogba and start off with a bang.

    Only natural winger we've got at U18 level really at the moment. Cole does a brilliant job but he's seen as more of a CM.

    The wing seems his best position to utilize his pace

    Cole might be best playing behind the striker, his mobility and ability to get past players would be of great use.

    great technical ability, his crossing is great, he's not a case of "he's quick, stick him on the wing" he is very good at crossing too. Wing might be his best option too due to his size.
