Several Championship clubs are reportedly tracking the 22-year-old, who has been farmed out on loan by Sir Alex Ferguson four times.

Burnley are said to be a likely destination should the midfielder choose to strike out on his own.

Eagles, on pre-season duty with United in South Africa, told MUTV: "I'd love to stay at Old Trafford and make my career as a United player, but I need to think about playing regularly.

"There have been talks with Premier League and Championship clubs, but nothing's been decided.

"It's difficult because I want to play every week, whether I leave United or stay at United. If I think I'm going to get a chance here then I'd love to stay. If not, maybe I have to look somewhere else.

"I'll speak to the gaffer over the next week or so and see what happens. There are all sorts of options available."
