Tom Lawrence: Replaced by Ryan Giggs last season

The 20-year-old, who can play out wide or up front, has emerged as one of the brightest young talents at United, and was handed his debut by then interim boss Ryan Giggs at the end of last season having impressed during earlier loan stints at Yeovil and Carlisle.

His previous deal expired this summer, and United had been locked in talks to try and keep him at the club as Sky Sports understands more than a dozen clubs from the Premier League and Championship were interested in acquiring his services. 

  

Welsh clubs Swansea and Cardiff tried to sign Lawrence back in January and their interest is known to remain, while the likes of Southampton, Newcastle, Sunderland, Leicester, Burnley, Stoke, Blackburn and Norwich have also showed an interest.

But Lawrence looks to have pledged his future to the Red Devils, with the hope of making the breakthrough under Louis van Gaal in the coming season.

Lawrence was also handed a call-up by Wales over the summer, but while his club future is set to be resolved, his international one is far from decided.

Sky Sports understands that, despite his call-up, England youth supremo Gareth Southgate is looking very closely at Lawrence, who would qualify through his English father, with a view to persuading him to make the switch.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
