Manchester United are reportedly weighing up a shock move for Sheffield Wednesday teenage wing-back Hayden White.
The 17-year-old has impressed with his performances for the Owls' U-21 side this season, despite being inexperienced and years younger than his team mates. White, known for his pace, moved into defence this season after starting his Sheffield career as a winger.
The right-back has now gained the attention of several top-flight clubs, including the Red Devils, and Sir Alex Ferguson is considering a summer approach for the youngster, according to the Daily Mirror.
United are short of options at right-back as either Chris Smalling or Phil Jones has to play out of position whenever Rafael is unavailable.
Ferguson had signed teenage midfielder Nick Powell from League One outfit Crewe Alexandra last summer and 20-year-old forward Wilfried Zaha from Championship side Crystal Palace in January.
Buttner: Still no Room for Complacency
Meanwhile, United defender Alexander Buttner insists his team must keep up the high level performance till it is confirmed they are the Premier League champions.
The Red Devils beat Sunderland 1-0 at the Stadium of Light two days ago, to keep the gap over arch-rivals and defending champions Manchester City to 15 points. With just eight more games left in the season, Ferguson's side have one hand on the title. However, Buttner feels the job is not done yet.
"If we want to be champions then we have to win every game. We have to focus every week and win every game until the end. If we are champions then we can relax! We are in a good position but we have to try every week to play hard, not have any easy thinking and work hard for each other," the Dutchman said.
Buttner, who joined United from Eredivisie side Vitesse Arnhem last summer, has made just 11 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils in his debut season. However, the left-back is confident he can earn a regular spot in the side soon.
"It needs time and I needed a couple of months, when I came here for the first time, to settle in. It's started to be good now and I try to have my life set up here now. I know I signed for five years, so it's started to begin," the defender added.
