Though they would love to have him back, it is very unlikely that the England under 21 international will be seen in a United shirt again and he said his goodbyes with an emotional post on social media on Thursday evening after making his last appearance in Tuesday’s play-off semi-final defeat to Nottingham Forest.

It read: “Words can not justify how I am feeling right now. First of all I wanna say sorry for the other night but I am so proud of the team and how we finished the season and I hope you guys can continue that in the next.

"Thank you to the players, staff and especially the fasn for showing me all the love from day one. I appreciate you all for bringing me some of the best memories of my career so far. I don't think there will be a more exciting feeling than scoring in front of the Kop end.

"I wish you all nothing but the best in the future. Once a Blade, always a Blade. Thanks again."

Earlier this week another loanee, Conor Hourihane, also said farewell as he returned to Aston Villa. The midfielder is a free agent and will leave Villa Park in the summer.
