Ashley Young: Missed the end of the season after limping off late in United'

The trio missed the end of the season with ankle, foot and nose problems respectively.

All three are yet to begin training and will be assessed at the start of next week, before it is decided whether or not they will travel to Thailand on Wednesday for the start of United's five-match summer programme.

"We have a few injury doubts and people coming back from injury," Moyes, speaking at his first press conference as United boss, said.

"They still may go but will be assessed at the start of next week."

Moyes also confirmed new boy Wilfried Zaha will report for duty for the first time on Monday after being given extended leave following the European U21 Championship.

Shinji Kagawa will not link up with his team-mates until United reach Japan on 21 July but Javier Hernandez will miss out completely.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
