Manchester United youngster Marnick Vermijl will consider leaving the club on a permanent basis should David Moyes keep his job, his agent has indicated.
Vermijl, 22, joined the Premier League giants in 2010 from Standard Liege but after making his first senior appearance for the club in a League Cup tie last season he was shipped out on loan to Eredivisie side NEC Nijmegen following the Scot's appointment last summer.
The Belgian has won acclaim during his spell in Holland where he has established himself as the club's first choice option at right back. His performances have caught the eye of Dutch champions Ajax and Belgian champions Anderlecht who are keen to make him an offer at the end of the season.
After a campaign where United have been left with just one natural right back in their squad in Rafael da Silva, Vermijl's agent insists the club are keen to bring the player back to Old Trafford at the end of his loan deal.
However, should the full back not be promised a role in the first team squad he will not hesitate to try his luck elsewhere with the long term with the presence of Moyes at the United helm likely to play a significant role in his decision.
"The people at Manchester United are very happy with his development," Vermijl's agent Tony Dullers told Het Nieuwsblad. "They want Marnick at a better club next season. But a new loan is not what he wants. He will either get his chance in the first team, or find a permanent move. He is still under contract until June 2015 at United, but much depends on the situation of David Moyes.
"(If he remains as coach) then it does not look good, because he let Marnick go to NEC quite easily. If Moyes is fired it opens other perspectives."
Should a move away from United happen, Dullers believes Vermijl will have no shortage of options with the possibility of a move to another Premier League club an option he would also relish.
"I have a meeting with Genk director Dirk Degraen next week," Dullers continued. "Later, Anderlecht and I will sit together. Even Ajax and several Premier League clubs enquired and England continues to be his preference, but he is definitely open to beautiful Dutch and Belgian clubs."
Since taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson last summer, Moyes has sanctioned over 20 loan deals involving the departures of the club's under-18 and under-21 starlets. Earlier this week Everton's Under-18's coach Kevin Sheedy claimed that Moyes had shown little regard for the Toffees' youth ranks during his tenure at the club.
