Manchester United media round-up: Midfielder linked with exit; under-21s triumph

Old Trafford 2

A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United

According to Sky Sports sources, West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher.

The Scotland international started the campaign as United’s vice-captain, but he has struggled for game-time this season, making just 12 appearances, playing for only 459 minutes and seeing the vice-captaincy handed to Michael Carrick.

Sky Sports is now reporting that West Brom have made contact with United over a possible move for a player whose contract expires in the summer.

In other news, the Hull Daily Mail reports on United under-21s’ 3-0 FA Youth Cup victory against their Hull City counterparts.

The match took place at Old Trafford, with Zac Dearnley scoring the opener and Callum Gribbin scoring twice to ensure United qualified for the next round of a competition they have previously excelled in.

United manager Louis van Gaal has shown he is not afraid to promote from within and this latest batch of youngsters will be hoping to follow the likes of Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett into the first-team in due course.
