GARY O'DRISCOLL is set to start as Manchester United's new head of medical services on Monday.
The former Arsenal club doctor is joining the Red Devils after 15 years in North London.
United agreed O'Driscoll's arrival back in July after he previously came close to joining Liverpool in 2020.
The 53-year-old Irishman had been the Gunners' club doctor before becoming their head of medical in 2017.
He also spent a decade as the Irish national team's doctor before joining Arsenal.
Prior to O'Driscoll's arrival at Old Trafford, Jim Moxon has been working as United's interim head of medical services following the departure of Steve McNally in December last year.

Meanwhile, others have only recently returned to fitness, such as summer signing Rasmus Hojlund.
