Donny van de Beek has left the training camp of the Netherlands national team to complete his transfer to Manchester United. The Ajax midfielder was allowed to skip training on Monday and he is currently on his way to Schiphol airport where he will board a plane to Manchester. He will arrive at around 20:00 English time before undergoing a medical. It is unclear if Van de Beek will undergo a medical tonight or tomorrow morning.

Dutch outlet NOS report that Van de Beek was spotted leaving the Dutch camp in Zeist at the KNVB headquarters before driving off to the airport.
