United have had an excellent summer transfer window thus far, landing the three major transfers including that of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

While Sancho and Varane have stolen the headlines, Heaton had a relatively low-key arrival at Old Trafford.

Heaton is rejoining the Red Devils from Aston Villa for a second stint, having previously turned out for the Manchester club from 2002-2010.

According to Metro UK, the Englishman is not expected to get too many first-team appearances as De Gea and Dean Henderson are currently ahead of him in the pecking order.

However, despite his signing having little to no fanfare, De Gea has revealed it is the one he is most delighted about.

"[I’m especially excited to welcome] Tom, the keeper, who I’m with a lot of more of the time," De Gea told Man United website.
"He’s a great bloke and a top keeper. He’s really going to bring a lot to the group and let’s hope it’s the same with the rest of the signings too. They have great quality and I reckon that it’ll be easy for them to settle in," he added.

Speaking on all the new arrivals at United, De Gea exuded confidence they will settle in quickly and help take the club to the next level.
