Manchester United defender Oliver Gill has rejected a new contract with the club to move to Durham University and study Economics.

The 20-year-old has never played for the United first-team, but was an unused substitute on four occasions.

The Surrey-born star was voted Reserve Team Player of the Year last season, and he had a loan spell at Bradford City in 2010.

Gill is the son of United chief executive David Gill and joined the youth academy in 2007 and will seemingly follow his father into business, with Gill Snr having been connected with United for 14 years.

A Red Devils’ spokesperson said: “Oliver was offered a new contract by the club, but he has decided instead to focus on his studies.”

Meanwhile United new boy Ashley Young is pleased with how he has started his Old Trafford career and wants to help the club win more silverware.

“I am just delighted to be here and get myself on the pitch,” he said.

“No disrespect for the Villa boys but as soon as I heard of Manchester United’s interest, I just wanted to get the deal done and start training.

“I can play left, right, off the front striker or as a main striker, so I just have to concentrate on my own game and wherever I am picked, do myself justice.

“The manager bought me for a reason, to get assists and goals and work hard for the team. If I can do that every time I am selected, my job is done.”
