England - Japan's Kagawa completes United move

Japan midfielder Shinji Kagawa completed his move to Manchester United on Friday when he signed a four-year deal, the English Premier League giants announced.

Kagawa has moved to United from German champions Borussia Dortmund.

The 23-year-old passed a medical earlier Friday and veteran United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was confident Kagawa would enjoy a successful spell with the English giants.

"Shinji is an exciting young midfielder with great skill, vision and a good eye for goal," said Ferguson.

"I am delighted he has chosen to come to United. I believe he will make an impact upon the team very quickly as he is suited to United's style of play.

"We are all looking forward to working with him."
