Manchester United's latest acquisition Victor Lindelof has wasted no time in getting to grips with the culinary delights in his new city.
The 22-year-old was announced as a United player on Wednesday evening and after finalising his move to Old Trafford, headed straight down to Wing's for a celebratory dinner.
The Chinese restaurant is more synonymous with the Louis van Gaal era at United - the Dutch boss was a regular at the Cantonese restaurant - but many of United's current squad have been spotted there and the rave reviews clearly did not take long to reach Lindelof.

He was snapped arriving for dinner with his girlfriend Maja Nilsson shortly after his £30.7m switch from Benfica had been confirmed by United.
As well as Van Gaal being a regular, Wayne Rooney and Paul Pogba have been seen there. But it is not just popular with United players - Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo was quick to visit after joining from Barcelona last August.
In a video shared by United on Instagram, Lindelof arrived via jet to Manchester on Wednesday before being driven to the Carrington training ground in a Chevrolet.
There, he finalised his terms and posed for pictures in his new team's colours.
'I am thrilled to be joining Manchester United,' Lindelof said. 'I have enjoyed my time at Benfica enormously and I have learned a lot there.
'But I’m looking forward to playing in the Premier League at Old Trafford and for Jose Mourinho.

Girlfriend Nilsson took to Instagram to reveal her excitement around Lindelof's transfer and also to thank Benfica fans for their support.
One picture had the two of them together and was captioned 'PROUD' while another, alongside a picture of her outside the Sir Alex Ferguson stand, detailed her gratitude towards Benfica and their fans.
