Willock was on the books of Arsenal as a youngster, where his brother Joe remains. Their sibling Chris left Arsenal for Benfica in June.

"Matty is a versatile midfielder who played for Manchester United over the past few years and enjoyed a part of his football training at Arsenal," said Utrecht boss Erik ten Hag.

"In Manchester he has not yet managed to step up to the first team, but we are confident having seen him many times in the Premier League youth teams play to promise that he can add value to Utrecht."
