Charlie Scott, the Manchester United defender, looks set to leave Old Trafford after being granted permission to play for Sheffield United’s under-23’s against Aston Villa last week.

Although it remains unclear if Scott, aged 20, will be offered a contract by the Blades, the Premier League club’s willingness to let him feature in the game suggests Ricky Sbragia, their development manager, is preparing to clear to decks ahead of a reshuffle behind the scenes.

Scott has started five of Manchester United’s last six games at under-23 level and can operate at centre-half, full-back or in midfield.

Chris Wilder, United’s first team manager, completed the loan signing of Scott’s team mate James Wilson ahead of Friday’s Steel City derby against Sheffield Wednesday.
