Owen Hargreaves has completed his move to United from Bayern Munich, putting pen to paper on a four-year contract with the Barclays Premier League champions. "It's been a long time coming," Owen said. "It was probably the worst-kept secret in football, but it's great to be here."

"I think it's great to finally reach a positive conclusion," he said. "Especially after all the time and energy that's been put in from everyone involved!"

BBC Sport understands that Owen Hargreaves is expected to complete his transfer to Manchester United next week. Hargreaves passed a medical at United last week and all that remains is the formality of signing a contract, which will be for either three or four years. The 26-year-old will fly to Canada on Tuesday to visit his family and should return to Manchester early next week.

Bayern Munich have agreed to sell Owen Hargreaves to Manchester United. Club president Franz Beckenbauer told German TV: "Owen is leaving. That was the player's wish. It's a good match and it's also a good deal financially." Beckenbauer confirmed the transfer fee was "in the range" of 17 million.

Speaking about losing Hargreaves, Bayern Manager Rummenigge said: "I am disappointed to be losing the energetic midfielder. A player like Owen Hargreaves would have looked good in our team next year. "In the defensive midfield position Owen is one of the best in the world - it's a big sporting loss for us."

Hargreaves has been a long-standing United target and he is now expected to sign a four-year deal with the newly-crowned Premiership champions.
