Woolston will now join the youth team setup at Old Trafford and fans will hope he can have a bright future at the club.

The Red Devils have a proud tradition of bringing through youngsters from their academy, becoming known for always having an academy graduate in their matchday squad in a run going back as far as 1937.

Woolston may well find himself in the running for a first-team spot sooner than expected, of course, with David de Gea’s United future in some doubt at the moment.

The Spanish shot-stopper’s contract expires at the end of the season, and i News have already reported of MUFC looking for a replacement for him by considering moves for big names like Jan Oblak, Jordan Pickford and Keylor Navas.
