Former Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick is on Manchester United’s list of options in their hunt for a new signing, according to a report.

Hendrick left the Clarets on June 30 after refusing to extend his contract at Turf Moor.

As such, he is a free agent and Football Insider claims there will be a “Europe-wide” race for his signature.

United are among those keen, with the Red Devils reportedly monitoring Hendrick’s situation ahead of a potential swoop.

Nevertheless, they hold a concrete interest and admire Hendrick’s ability to play in several positions.

The Republic of Ireland international played across the midfield, including on the right, for Burnley this season.

In doing so, Hendrick proved effective in both defence and attack for Sean Dyche’s side.

What’s more, United feel they should consider a move given he is a free agent.
