Marnick Vermijl is a versatile defender who arrived from Standard Liege in 2010.
Nominally a right-back, he has also been used further up the field and scored twice on his Reserve team debut against Shamrock Rovers in a friendly.
An energetic contributor, he impressed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the manager during a short trial spell at Carrington to earn a move from Belgium with Standard receiving an undisclosed fee in compensation.
After being a mainstay for Warren Joyce’s team in 2010/2011, making 24 appearances in all at second-string level, a big season lies in store for the
youngster. He also contributed three goals – against West Brom and in two games against Bury, one in the Lancashire Senior Cup.
The following season, he was a regular and played his part in a successful campaign – winning the Barclays Premier Reserves League and Manchester Senior Cup – and impressing with his work at right-back. He made 25 starts with another four substitute appearances and scored once – a splendid strike at Sunderland.
Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that he expects Vermijl to stay at the club rather than head out on loan.
