Manchester United could allow a number of youth team players to leave the club on deadline day of the January transfer window.
MEN Sport reported last week that as many as four youngsters were being considered for loan exits, of which one has since been officially announced.
Reece Devine joined Walsall on Friday and made his debut for the League Two strugglers over the weekend as they lost 1-0 against ten-man Bristol Rovers.
Devine, 20, had been on loan at St. Johnstone earlier in the season but was recalled amid a lack of regular playing time for the Scottish Premiership side.
Youth striker D’Mani Mellor is also expected to leave the club before the end of the window with League Two side Crawley Town leading the race for his signature.
Mellor has attracted plenty of Football League interest this month after his previous loan deal with Salford City was officially terminated.
Young defender Will Fish has also received attention after his loan move to Stockport was terminated this month.
A couple of other youth players are also attracting interest as the clock ticks down on deadline day though there is nothing advanced at this stage.
