Man Utd youngster Tunnicliffe inspired by academy graduates Welbeck, Cleverley

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe is drawing inspiration from Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck.

Many at United believe Tunnicliffe can follow them into the first team.

The youngster told "The most important thing for me about the tour is hopefully being able to put myself in the manager's thoughts. That's my aim. Obviously there are a lot of top midfielders in front of me but it's up to me to show him what I can do.

"I've seen how Clevs [Tom Cleverley] and Welbs [Danny Welbeck] have done on past trips and how they progressed from there into the first-team squad and that's what I want to do. Seeing how well both of them have done gives all the young lads a big incentive because it shows that the manager is still willing to put youngsters in if they do well."
