"The opportunity to join Manchester United is a dream come true," Bishop told United's website. "This club has a great record of developing goalkeepers and I cannot wait to work with the coaches here to improve every single day.
"I want to take the chance to thank everyone at Southend United for everything they have done for me throughout my time there; without their support, this move would not have been possible."
Earlier this week, Southend boss Sol Campbell confirmed Bishop's absence from the squad that fell to a 3-1 defeat at Doncaster on Tuesday was due to the goalkeeper having a medical at an unnamed club.
