Man United win Smalling race

BY foxsports • January 26, 2010

Manchester United agreed to sign Fulham's Chris Smalling on Tuesday and the defender will join the Premier League champion at the start of next season.

"Chris has agreed personal terms with the club," United said in a statement. "He will remain at Fulham until the end of the current season."

The 20-year-old Smalling only joined Fulham from non-league side Maidstone in June 2008.

He has started just six games for Fulham but has already played for England's under-21 side.

Smalling made his debut on the final day of last season and started his first match on Sept. 17 in the Europa League.
