Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has sent goalkeeper Ben Amos on loan to Bolton Wanderers for a month, where he will replace Adam Bogdan after the Trotters' number one was ruled out for six weeks with an ankle injury, the Premier League giants confirmed.

The news come after the Old Trafford side confirmed the arrival of Spain international Victor Valdes to back-up David de Gea – with Ander Lindegaard continuing at the club as the third-choice 'keeper.

Even though Amos started the season as Van Gaal's second choice, being on the bench for the first four matches of the campaign, the manager has since left him out of the squad, with Lindegaard replacing him.

And following Valdes' signing, the Premier League giants have signed off Amos's departure on loan to Neil Lennon's side, while admitting they don't expect to loan anymore players out before the end of the transfer window.

"Ben Amos will be the latest Manchester United player to head out on loan after the Reds reached agreement with Bolton Wanderers for a temporary move," the club said after also confirming the signing of right-back Sadiq El Fitouri for the Under-21 side.

"The 24-year-old goalkeeper, who has joined on loan for a month, will help the Trotters cover the absence of Adam Bogdan after the first-choice shot-stopper suffered an ankle ligament injury in training this week. It was a cruel blow for Bogdan, who performed superbly in the FA Cup fourth-round clash with Liverpool at Anfield and will now miss the replay."

Amos joined the Old Trafford academy at the age of 11 and made his senior debut against Middlesbrough in 2008.

He has since made only six further appearances for the Premier League giants and spent time on loan at Peterborough United, Molde, Oldham Athletic, Hull City and Carlisle United.

The former England Under-21 'keeper could make his debut at Bolton this weekend against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
