Old Trafford boss set to swing the axe.
Roy Hodgson has admitted an interest in signing former West Bromwich Albion player, Manchester stopper keeper Tomasz Kuszczak.
The Baggies chief is looking for a replacement for Scott Carson who has joined Turkish side Bursaspor.
Hodgson said: “We are in need of a goalkeeper and Kuszczak is one of the many names that we have considered.”
Bolton are looking to bring in young Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck on a season-long loan.
The Trotters had success with Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge last season and now want the 20-year old England international to join them at the Reebok Stadium.
Defender Chris Smalling signed on at Manchester United for another five years and immediately set his sights on remaining at Old Trafford for a long time after that.
But Jonny Evans’ future in a Manchester United jersey is a lot more uncertain now that the Northern Ireland international has slid down the pecking order behind Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Smalling with new arrival from Blackburn Rovers, Phil Jones, also greatly enhancing Sir Alex Ferguson’s defensive options.
Wolves were hoping to swoop for the Newtownabbey man and a move to Tottenham, together with striker Dimitar Berbatov, remains a possibility

As well as this pair of Man United squad players it is believed that Sunderland are still keen on midfielder Darron Gibson even though the Irishman’s move to the Stadium of Light has stuttered due to wage demands. Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to trim his Old Trafford squad and to remove some player’s salaries from the balance sheet and there is now movement on these deals.
Having snapped up Phil Jones from Blackburn Rovers it seems fair to assume that Jonny Evans has slipped even further down the Man United centre back pecking order, where he already had Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Chris Smalling ahead of him. Wolves were interested in the 23 year old but have since signed Birmingham City’s Roger Johnson which leaves the Belfast born youngster left wondering what the future holds.
Tomasz Kuszczak is in a similar position with David de Gea coming in to replace Edwin van der Sar and seemingly Anders Lindegaard also ahead of the Polish international who is interesting West Brom, where Kuszczak has spent two seasons before his move to Man United.
Danny Welbeck is a player that Sir Alex Ferguson has a great deal of admiration for and doesn’t want to sell the England Under 21 international but would be willing to send out on another season long loan deal, unless Dimitar Berbatov leaves the club, which is reportedly still a possibility with Paris Saint-Germain said to be keen.
Darron Gibson was very near to following Wes Brown and John O’Shea to Sunderland and issues relating to his wage demands would have to be resolved before the Irish international could move to the North-East club and seeing as the 23 year old only managed six Premier League starts last term a move to join the Black Cats would be a good move for all parties.
