Will Keane: Looks set for loan move

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he plans to loan out a number of his young players next season.

Ferguson is keen to continue his policy of farming out his best young talent on loan to gain some valuable first-team experience.

The likes of Will and Michael Keane and Davide Petrucci, who are regulars in the reserves, are expected to go out on loan after attracting interest from clubs this season.

"There will be a few [going out on loan]," Ferguson told Inside United. "We'll always do that. We've had eight or nine out this season, including Robbie Brady, Scott Wootton, Joshua King and John Cofie. I went to see Oliver Norwood at Coventry recently and he was a star for them.

"Some of them will definitely go out again next season: potentially the two Keane brothers, Tom Thorpe, Davide Petrucci, Zeki Fryers and Matty James, who was out for a year-and-a-half through injury but is back now and playing well for the reserves. Marnick Vermijl will probably stay here for another year yet."

Ferguson is happy with the talent coming through the ranks at Old Trafford and feels the future is bright.

"We have some terrific young players here: [Jesse] Lingard, [Larnell] Cole, the two Keanes, Petrucci, Fryers, Vermijl, [Ryan] Tunnicliffe, Thorpe," added Ferguson.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
