Five facts about reported Manchester United target Quincy Promes

Old Trafford Statues

Manchester United have been linked with yet another Dutchman - Quincy Promes - but who is he and what can he offer the team?

Reports this weekend have linked Manchester United with a move for Dutch international winger Quincy Promes.

The 22-year-old has been included in new United boss Louis van Gaal’s World Cup squad this summer. But for those keen to know a little more about him, here are five facts to kick things off:

1) Born in Holland in 1992, Promes started playing youth football with Ajax before ultimately moving to FC Twente in 2009.

2) He made his senior debut for Twente in April 2012 but would spend the next season on loan at Go Ahead Eagles. During this time, Promes made 41 appearances, scoring 17 goals and providing 11 assists.

3) After such an outstanding individual campaign it was no surprise Promes returned to Twente and was given a regular starting-berth. This season he made 31 appearances for the Eredivisie side, scoring 11 goals and setting up a further eight.

4) Promes has previously played for Holland at under-19, under-20 and under-21 level. He made his senior debut against France in a friendly in March of this year.

5) A minor injury that ruled him out for three matches put a stop to a blistering spell of form earlier this season, during which he found the net five times in four matches. But that injury aside, he has been fully fit all season and could be a formidable threat from the right-side if United do make their move.
