Signs from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee believed to be in excess of 1 million on the 29th July 2008 becoming Owen Coyle's sixth signing of the close season.

Three year contract agreed.

The 22-year-old Eagles was born in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire and is generally an attacking right-sided winger but he can also play on the left wing.

Eagles came through the youth system at Watford. He then left to join the Manchester United academy at the tender age of 14!

He made his first team debut for the Red Devils in October 2003 coming on as a substitute at Leeds in the League Cup.

He returned to Watford on loan in January 2005.

Sheffield Wednesday then also signed the player on loan for the first half of the 2005-06 season.

Eagles returned to Vicarage Road yet again on loan in January 2006, before agreeing to a spell with Dutch side NEC Nijmegen in August 2006.

Returning to Old Trafford, Chris Eagles struggled to break into the first team sixteen at Manchester United
