Manchester United have completed talks to bring Mitchell van der Gaag to the club as one of incoming manager Erik ten Hag’s assistants.

The pair were flown to London by a private jet laid on by United on Wednesday and are set to meet staff at the club’s Mayfair headquarters on Thursday.

Ten Hag has been working remotely since leaving Ajax early following their final game of the season on Sunday but United’s incoming manager wants to make a running start to the job and travelling to England to meet colleagues was seen as an important step.

Van der Gaag’s presence alongside has long been expected and the conclusion of negotiations on his contract means he can join for the visit too.

Steve McClaren is also set to join Ten Hag’s support team, with discussion on personal terms ongoing.

Interim manager Ralf Rangnick will lead United for the final time on Sunday, when they travel to Crystal Palace. United sit sixth in the Premier League, two points ahead of seventh-placed West Ham United.
