Former Manchester United winger Gyliano van Velzen has joined Crawley Town on a two-year contract with an option for a further year.
Gyliano started his career at United back in 2012 with the Red Devils signing the left-footed winger from Ajax’s Academy set-up. He was in the reserve team playing alongside Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard but failed to make the breakthrough to the first-team.
“Gyliano has got a very good pedigree and is someone we have been looking at for several months,” said director of Football Selim Gaygusuz.
“In the summer we made contact and although he had other options in Europe, he is very keen to play in England. Fortunately for us, he knows our former player Enzio Boldewijn well and Enzio could not have been more helpful with regards to his positive comments about the club.
“He has worked on his own fitness for the last few weeks so it may take him time to get up to speed but we think he is going to be a real asset to the squad and a player, like Denzeil Boadu, whom the fans will really love.”
The 25-year-old will wear jersey number 11 and his signing is subject to satisfactory medical and international clearance.
