Hegil joined Manchester United from Sunderland this summer, and his transfer fee is £300,000.
Hegil has passed his 17th birthday this month and he is believed to have agreed to sign a contract with Manchester United that expires in 2023.
Although he is still an apprentice, Hegil has already made a brilliant performance in the Manchester United U23 youth team.
Manchester United defeated Arsenal and Tottenham in this summer's battle. Hegil also scored for the Manchester United U23 youth team in a 3-3 draw with Arsenal youth team last Saturday.
Due to the lack of strikers, Manchester United U23 youth team coach Wood promoted Hegier to the team.
