QPR midfielder Sean Goss: Why I left Man Utd...

QPR midfielder Sean Goss has explained leaving Manchester United midseason.

Goss left for QPR in January, despite discussions with the club about signing a new contract at Old Trafford.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "It was a frustrating time when I was close to making my debut, but you can't look back on that. I felt like I had a lot of time to make up after my injury, so I couldn't wait to get out and start playing first-team football and improve my game from there.

"Leaving was tough. It had been ongoing for a while. I got back fit after my back injury and there were discussions about me signing a new contract at United, but I thought with the opportunity to come to QPR and get first-team football I couldn't really turn it down.

"It was mainly Nicky Butt I was talking to. We had a few long discussions about whether I should go on loan or leave on a permanent deal, but I felt the time was right for me to go, especially with the opportunities available to me."
