David Weir: Using his Everton connections

New Blades boss David Weir did not rule out the possibility of some young fringe players following the former Toffees coach to United when he recently replaced Danny Wilson as permanent manager of the League One club.

Weir's former colleague at Goodison Park, Under-21s coach Alan Stubbs, said he would seriously consider sending players to team back up with the former Scotland international in South Yorkshire.

"I think it's something that we will think about because it's a big club," Stubbs told Everton's official club website.

"Davey knows the young lads who could benefit the club and benefit him and, if that's the case, and we see if it's right for the player, then why not?

"It will be a great experience for them, but first and foremost we will look and see if it's the right move for the player, because that's what we always do.

"We never send lads out on loan and just leave them. We see if it's the right type of club, whether they play the right type of football, whether it will suit them and whether they will look after the player.

"There are quite a few things we look into before we let the young lads out on loan."
