Kuszczak set to leave Old Trafford

Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak looks set to leave Old Trafford after 5 years at the club, according to Sky Sports.

The Polish goalkeeper made 7 appearances for the club last season but has failed to prove himself a worthy successor to Edwin van der Sar following the Dutchman’s retirement. With the imminent arrival of young Spaniard David de Gea from Atletico Madrid in an £18 million deal, Kuszczak looks likely to move on from the Premiership Champions as he chases first team football.

The 29-year old moved to Old Trafford from West Bromwich Albion and it seems his former club could move for the goalkeeper, who has won 10 caps for Poland. Current West Brom Number 1 Scott Carson is entering the final year of his contract at the Hawthorns and, with an extension yet to be agreed, could be on his way to Turkey in a surprise move to Bursaspor.

Kuszczak first moved to Old Trafford on loan in 2006 before making the deal permanent the following summer. He has played for the club 61 times but has been understudy to van der Sar for most of his Old Trafford career. His last appearance came in the 1-1 draw with Blackburn which clinched United their record 19th League title but his performance was littered with errors.
