Republic of Ireland international Long had looked like leaving the club in a shock deadline-day move to Hull City - but the deal fell through.

Now Clarke hopes that contract talks with the 26-year-old, which have previously stalled, can now resume and reach a positive conclusion.

"The club made a decision which was right for them - obviously I'm part of the club - but very quickly, the bid collapsed," Clarke told the Daily Mirror.

"Shane and his advisor need to sit down and talk with the club to try and get a resolution.

"Given contract talks had stalled for so long, it is possible that's why the club originally accepted the bid.

"Shane is a very, very important member of our squad. I'm delighted he's here."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
