"Following requests by supporters and months of negotiation, a very limited number of white second change adidas shirts are set to go on sale," a United statement said.

"Purchases will be limited to one shirt per person, both online and instore. Please note junior shirts cannot be sold online due to low stock."

United previously said the shirt would not be brought out in their stores, but a number of Blades fans lobbied them - leading to negotiations with kit supplier adidas.
