Manchester United’s proposed new signing, Japan international Shinji Kagawa, has said he hopes to be given a central role at Old Trafford, according to news agency Reuters.

United have agreed a deal to sign the midfielder from Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund, with only the red tape of a work permit and a medical preventing the transfer from going ahead. Kagawa is capable of playing on the left side of the attack but has revealed he hopes to play more centrally under Sir Alex Ferguson, in a position similar to the one in which he has recently excelled for his country.

Kagawa is quoted by Reuters as telling Japanese news agency Kyodo: “I want to play (in the hole). I feel like that's where I play my best football. I plan on working hard so I can win my place at the position.” Kagawa added that he was impressed by the style of football employed by United, and that he relished the challenge of earning his place in the side. Kagawa, 23, won the title twice in his time in Germany, clinching a league and cup double last season.
