Blackburn Roves manager Gary Bowyer says he is hoping his relationship with David Moyes will mean he can have first refusal on any young players Manchester United might look to send out on loan, according to Sky Sports.

Rovers’ managing director Derek Shaw also knew Moyes from their time together at Preston North End and Bowyer is hoping to take advantage of this contact.

United have several young players who seem like they could benefit from some lower-level experience and regular first-team football next season, including teenage forward Nick Powell.

Bowyer said: “If we can establish a link with them in terms of bringing players to give them experience in the Championship, it’s a fantastic contact.

“Derek obviously had David at Preston and when we were in the run-in during last season I just asked if it would be possible to speak to him.

“Derek asked him and he said ‘yes, no problem’. David was brilliant.”

Bowyer added that his talk with Moyes was very helpful in terms of planning for Blackburn for next season, as they look to end a difficult few years and reach the Premier League once again.

He added: “He gave me half an hour of his time, he went through a list of things of, ‘Are you doing this, are you doing that, this is what you might need to do’.

“The advice was invaluable to us in terms of what we did and how we went about it towards the end of the season.”
