Manchester United transfers: Who is Nathan Collins? The Stoke City starlet recommended by ex-Red Devil Darren Fletcher

The 18-year-old centre-back is highly rated and made his senior debut in April for the Championship club.

Nathan Collins has represented Republic of Ireland at under-17 levelCollins could be seen as a long-term solution to United’s central defensive issues, which have been evident this season.

If the Red Devils sell Marcus Rojo and Eric Bailly in the summer then they will be left with just Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof.

The youngster could also be seen as somewhat of a cheaper option than the rest of the central defenders available, such as Matthijs de Ligt and Toby Alderweireld.
