Ex-United teen moves to Belgium

Fryers joins Standard on a two-year contract

Former Manchester United defender Ezekiel Fryers has signed a two-year contract with Belgian club Standard Liege.

Ezekiel Fryers: On the move

The 19-year-old, whose deal with the Red Devils expired in June, made his senior debut for Sir Alex Ferguson's side last September in a Carling Cup tie.

Fryers went on to make a further five appearances for United but has now moved to Standard after catching their eye a couple of years ago.

"We spotted Ezekiel two years ago at an elite tournament where England and Belgium participated," sporting director Jean-Francois de Sart told the club's official website.

"We have followed him since. He was out of contract with Manchester United and it was a great opportunity we could not miss."
