With Manchester United's Nigerian fans eagerly waiting for the next player of Nigerian descent to feature for the Red Devils first team, allnigeriasoccer.com lists the ten players in the ranks of the academy.
No Nigeria international has represented United since the formation of the club 140 years ago, but former Republic of Ireland defender Paul McGrath played for the club for seven years before transferring to Aston Villa in 1989.
Tosin Kehinde : Born in Lagos, Kehinde has trained with Manchester United's first-teamers in the current season. The midfielder is one of the stars of the U23 team.
Matthew Olosunde : The American-born right-back was tipped to make his debut this season after making the provisional squads for Premier League games against Arsenal and Tottenham last year. He occasionally trains with the first team but plays for the U23s.
Mipo Odubeko : A Republic of Ireland youth-teamer, Odubeko is regarded as one of the brightest stars in United's U15s team, so much so that he regularly plays for the U16s team. He is tipped to make his U18 debut next season.
Deji Sotona : Has represented Republic of Ireland youth. Like Odubeko, he is classed as an U15 player but has some games under his belt for the U16s.
Shola Shoretire - Can be deployed as a winger or striker. Classed as an U14 player but trains with the U16s.
Hamzai Balogun - Born 2004, Balogun is a versatile defender who can play left back, right back and central defense. Plays for the U13s.
Maximilano Oyedele - Another youngster that features for United's U13 team. He is a winger.
Oscar Guobadia - Represents Manchester United U12s. Oscar is predominantly a central defender who can be handy at right back.
Habeeb Ogunneye - Comfortable in multiple positions on the right flank, he stars for the U12s.
Joachim Adeoti - Born 2005, Adeoti features for the U12 team.

I Can't wait to see some of them make it to the 1st team.
In recent memories, Mikel Obi would have been the 1st Nigerian to have played United 1st team but the transfer tussle between his agent, Chelsea&Man Utd aborted the opportunity after he had arrived Carrington Training Complex @Manchester for Medicals.
Glory, Glory Manchester United.
