Previously on the books at Manchester City and then Valencia before heading to United, he signed his first professional contract last summer.

But he wants some guaranteed first-team football and is swapping Old Trafford for South Florida.

Full-back Harvey has been training with his dad’s new team recently after getting some time off and has decided to make the switch permanently.

He will initially join Inter Miami’s sister team Fort Lauderdale CF once he sorts his visa.

Fort Lauderdale play in the USL – effectively the second tier in the United States.

But proud-as-punch Neville has been pleased with his progress and won’t rule out the chances of his lad making the step up to MLS and helping Miami owner David Beckham make waves Stateside sooner rather than later.

The youngster took to Instagram with a post in Inter Miami training gear on Wednesday.

He commented: “Let’s go,” as Beckham liked the photo while plenty of Red Devils youngsters commented their support and love.

Harvey joins fellow Englishman Ryan Shawcross in Miami while West Brom’s Kieran Gibbs arrives this summer.

Sunderland striker Mitch Curry, 21, has also signed for Fort Lauderdale recently.

Miami are currently sixth in the MLS Eastern Conference with one win, one draw and one defeat so far in the former Lionesses boss’ first season in charge.
