United midfielder set for return after seven months out

There has been a forgotten man within Manchester United’s midfield over the past 18-months, that of Nick Powell.

Powell, 21, was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2012 and was billed to be the next big thing for Manchester United going forward, but the midfielder didn’t set the world alight as first thought and experienced mixed loan spells over at Wigan Athletic and Leicester City with some of those loanee managers putting doubt of his effort during training sessions.

Back in February 2015, Powell suffered a knee injury which required surgery, but, seven months later, the 21-year-old is set to make his Manchester United report this coming week when the clubs under-21s player Everton.

Great to see him back, and hopefully with a good league cup run for the first-team, he could pick up a squad selection later in the season under Louis van Gaal.
