Nathan Ellington: Looking for a new club

The 31-year-old former Wigan and Watford forward made eight appearances for the Railwaymen last season and has now been invited to join the squad for pre-season training.

"The opportunity was there for him and he has certainly worked hard on getting the weight off," Baker told the club's official website.

"He has been in to the training ground and he is looks far trimmer and fitter.

"He knew he was carrying too much weight last season and was playing catch up with his fitness but he has made that change.

"So who knows, a fit Nathan Ellington could be the answer we are looking for because we know he has quality."

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.
