Ferdinand expectng big things from new Man Utd teammate Powell

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is expecting big things from new teammate Nick Powell.

Powell arrives from Crewe Alexandra.

"He's a fine prospect. I've seen a few clips of him and watched a few games back home," Ferdinand told The Sun.

"He has an unpredictable style and can play off-the-cuff. He can pull things out the hat that you don't expect.

"We've not really seen as much as we would have liked in training as we're just doing a lot of small-sided work at the moment, but he has a great first touch and he's not afraid.

"He seems a confident lad and he's integrated straight into the squad.

"For a young lad, to come into an environment like Manchester United from a lower league club, you have to say he walked in with his shoulders back as if he's meant to be here.

"And that's a great start to his career here."
