Manchester United will consider a shock move to send Ashley Young out on loan in January in a bid to revive the England winger’s form writes Dave Kidd in the Sunday People.

Young has not played for United since their derby mauling by Manchester City last month and was axed from the England squad by Roy Hodgson for the current round of World Cup qualifiers.

United boss David Moyes is believed to feel that a mid-season loan might help Young get his career back on track and boost his chances of playing in Brazil next year.

And despite Young’s downturn in form such a decision is bound to spark interest from Premier League clubs – with Newcastle and West Ham likely to be at the front of the queue. Young 28 was a £17million signing from Aston Villa in 2011 but after a fine first season at Old Trafford his form has dipped since a disappointing Euro 2012.
