Cleverley set for United return

07 October 2010 09:11
Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed he could recall United midfielder Tom Cleverley from his loan spell at Wigan in January. The 21-year-old moved to the DW Stadium on a season-long loan in August but Ferguson believes he may be ready to challenge for a spot in the United team this season. He said: We'll probably bring Tom back in January. Tom's going to be a great footballer, I really like him. I've heard the fans are starting to talk about Tom, and I think they're right to do that because he could very well be the next top player to come through the ranks. Cleverley had been expected to stay at Old Trafford this season but Ferguson had a change of heart because of the competition for places. The United boss continued: I felt it could be hard to give him enough football. I think five or six months on loan could really help him. He'll benefit from first-team football in the Premier League. Cleverley, who has enjoyed successful loan spells with Leicester and Watford, has been limited to one Wigan appearance so far because of a knee injury. Do you think Cleverley will make it at United? Have your say.
