Manchester United are ready to cut their losses on Ashley Young and will listen to offers for the winger in January Goal can reveal.

The 28-year-old enjoyed an impressive debut campaign following his £17 million move from Aston Villa just over two years ago but injuries and a chronic loss of form have seen him fall down the Old Trafford pecking order.

Sources have told Goal that coaches have “seen enough” of the player who earns £110000-a-week plus bonuses to determine he is not worthy of a place in the long-term plans of David Moyes.

The former Watford starlet’s reputation has taken a pummelling having been embroiled in several diving controversies the most recent of which occurred during last month’s 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Afterwards Moyes criticised Young – comments that have served to strain the relationship between player and manager - for falling under the challenge of Kagisho Dikgacoi which earned his side a penalty and the South African international a red card.
