Sunderland defender Louis Laing is trialling at Manchester United.

The Journal says the 21-year-old will train with United this week as they look to bolster the levels beneath their first-team.

Laing has appeared at every international level between under-16 and under-19 and made his Premier League debut for the Black Cats as an 18-year-old.

Since then, however, he has failed to make a senior appearance, a combination of injury and four different managers not having helped his cause.
