The 24-year-old found himself fourth in the pecking order behind David De Gea, Victor Valdes, and Anders Lindegaard at Old Trafford before being allowed to leave on a temporary deal in January. He has since made eight appearances for the Trotters, impressing manager Lennon.

The former Celtic boss said: “Ben has certainly been beneficial for us. He has made us better, and I think it has worked for Ben too. So, it might be something we look at going forward.”

It would be unsurprising if the keeper were to leave the club, having claimed that he wanted to leave after Valdes signed.

The Star report that he said: “You could say that was the final nail in the coffin. Pre-season, I was told I was No.2. With the cup games, if I’d got a sniff of that, that would have made it worthwhile sticking around for. As soon as Victor was brought in, I was essentially demoted to fourth. You’ve got to move on.”

Despite coming close to the first team on several occasions, Amos has had a disappointing time with the Red Devils. He has been loaned out to six different clubs by the Mancunian side, and looks incredibly unlikely to ever make it at the Premier League giants.
