Former Manchester United youngster Frederic Veseli has a number of clubs in pursuit of his signature, including newly promoted Crystal Palace.

The 20-year-old, who was the last player to cross the Manchester divide when he joined United from Manchester City's youth ranks in January of last year, was one of eight players released by the Premier League champions this summer.

But Sky Sports report that the defender has no shortage of options despite the setback, with Ian Holloway's side reportedly interested in his services along with Birmingham City, Middlesbrough and Wigan.

Veseli also has clubs from Serie A and the Bundesliga gunning for his signature, bur his agent Adam Bouskouchi claims the defender would rather stay in England.

"Freddie wants to stay in England, he has been here since 2008 and he feels he is ready to push for a first team place somewhere, Bouskouchi said.

"There are a number of clubs showing an interest and he is considering his options."

The former FC Rennes youngster caused a stir when he chose not to extend his stay with Manchester City and join the youth ranks of the club's fierce rivals during the January transfer window of the 2011/12 season.

Although he has traditionally been deployed as a centre half, the Switzerland U21 international found himself utilised in a defensive midfield role and right back during the latter stages of United's Under-21 campaign.

But despite featuring frequently for United's title winning U21 ranks until his season was curtailed by injury in April, the club have seen fit to allow him to seek opportunities elsewhere having failed to done enough to demand a spot in the United squad.

In addition to Veseli, Reece Brown, John Cofie, Michele Fornasier, Luke Giverin, Luke Hendrie, Luke McCullough and Gyliano van Velzen were also released by United after they failed to earn new contracts at Old Trafford.
