Report: Lokeren and KV Mechelen tracking Manchester United youngster Marnick Vermijl

Manchester United

Marnick Vermijl could be set to leave Manchester United this month.

The 23-year-old has made just two appearances for the Red Devils since signing for the club in 2010, having started his career with Standard Liege.

Having made his debut in 2012 in a League Cup tie, he had to wait until 2014 for his second chance, turning out in the same competition - as United fell to a 4-0 defeat at MK Dons.

Being 23-years-old, one would expect that Vermijl is on his last chance of making waves in the first-team this season, and a departure from Old Trafford would not be unlikely for the former Belgian Under-21 international.

Despite his lack of appearances at the top level, there are two clubs who have shown an interest in signing Vermijl this month, with HLN reporting that Lokeren and KV Mechelen in his homeland are looking to bring him to Belgium in the transfer window.

Although never making an impact with the Red Devils, the full-back spent last season on loan with NEC Nijmegen in the Eredivise, and impressed in 28 league appearances. He scored three goals in those fixtures, and could have hoped that he would spend this season in and around the United first-team. However, the purchases of Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo prevented chances at left-back, and Rafael and Antonio Valencia have been preferred at right-back.

Although not the most glamorous move to return to Belgium, Vermijl may have no choice if he intends to secure consistent first-team football.
