United won the chase to sign the skilful Norwegian from Lyn and he was quickly blooded at Academy level.

Very highly regarded in his homeland, the talented midfielder is a player of real promise and is at the perfect place to improve.

The Oslo-born teenager enjoyed an impressive 2011 Milk Cup campaign and played a key role in United’s bid to retain the FA Youth Cup.

Indeed, shortly after his 17th birthday – when he signed professional terms with the club – a dazzling performance in the Youth Cup victory against Charlton at Old Trafford led to his

elevation into the Reserves squad for the first time. Daehli made his first appearance at that level as a substitute in the 1-0 defeat at West Bromwich Albion.

The campaign ended on a real high when he was awarded the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year in recognition of his efforts, following in some famous footsteps.

He contributed four goals in 16 starts with another six appearances as a substitute as he is being gently treated due to the physical nature of Under-18 football. With a full season under his belt, much is expected of him in 2012/2013.
