​Timber, who operates mainly as a centre-back but can play as a right-back, graduated from Ajax's famed youth academy before breaking into the first team in 2020.

He played 43 games in all competitions this season, helping his side win the Eredivisie​ title.

​The promising defender has six international caps to his name, having made his debut for the Netherlands in 2021.

Man United currently have the likes of Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Raphael Varane on their books. 

But Timber could walk straight into the first team considering his starring role under Ten Hag this term.
