Loan move could suit Welbeck


Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck is open to a temporary transfer away from Old Trafford if it sees him gain first-team action.

He enjoyed a loan spell at Championship side Preston North End last season and manager Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to farm him out to another top-flight club to further aid his development, a move the 19-year-old would be more than happy to take.

"My main aim is to be part of the first team set-up but I am happy to go on loan if the manager wants me to. I just want to keep playing games and improving," said Welbeck.

"I feel I have improved a lot over the last couple of years in particular. I have learned so much during that time particularly the importance of mental strength on and off the pitch. I just want to keep improving and striving to show everyone what I can do.

"I am really pleased with how the tour has gone for me so far and I am happy with my performances. I have got to keep going and continue to get my fitness up."
