Manchester United winger Ashley Young asks Jose Mourinho for loan exit

Manchester United winger Ashley Young has asked manager Jose Mourinho if he can be loaned out before the end of the January transfer window.

The England international has found chances very limited at United so far this term, despite being able to play in various roles both in midfield and defence.

United have already let Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay leave Old Trafford this month and the club may be unwilling to offload more, particularly versatile players.

Mourinho has previously confirmed he does not plan to anyone to leave the club on loan in this January transfer window except goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

The Daily Mail claim Young is pushing for a move away from the Theatre of Dreams as he is desperate to play more games, with a wide range of Premier League clubs keen on signing the utility-man.

West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion, Swansea City and Crystal Palace are all understood to be involved in the race to sign the 31-year-old, while Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng are monitoring the situation.

Young joined United from Aston Villa back in 2011, scoring 14 goals in 150 games for the Red Devils.
