Scott Wootton waiting to open Man Utd contract talks

Scott Wootton is waiting for news over a new contract at Manchester United.

The Mirror says centre-half Wootton has had a couple of first-team chances this season and did well against Chelsea until his last-minute foul handed the Blues a lifeline.

United’s officials have not offered him a concrete deal – and Wootton (above) may be on his way for a minimal fee next summer if Sir Alex Ferguson does not come up with something shortly.

The Merseysider is just 21 and faces a make-or-break spell in his career – but the signs are that he could be moving on.
