McGinty moved to Old Trafford from Charlton in 2009 and has taken in previous spells with Morecambe, Oxford and Carlisle to earn Under-19 honours with the Republic of Ireland.

Rovers boss Ronnie Moore stated the 19-year-old's versatility made him an appealing recruit.

"I'm really pleased to bring Sean in from Manchester United," said Moore on his club's official website. "He can play left-back or centre-back and gives us extra options in our defence.

"Our chief scout Dave Philpotts has watched him play for United's Under-21s and he's a big, strong lad who likes to get forward.

"Manchester United rate him highly and I'm sure he'll be a good addition to our squad. I'd like to thank Sir Alex Ferguson for allowing Sean to join us."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
