Manchester United have agreed terms with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of midfielder Shinji Kagawa, subject to his passing a medical test and obtaining a work permit.

Kagawa has been a revelation in Germany for the last two seasons, and United expect his transfer to be completed by the end of this month.

The 23-year-old joined Dortmund for 350,000 euros from a Japanese second division club, but German media claim he'll cost United 17 million euros.
