Manchester United defender Tom Thorpe has hopes of tasting first team football this season.

Thorpe is hoping to follow the path of Scott Wootton and Michael Keane into the United first team.

When asked if his aim was to emulate Wootton and Keane, he told MUTV: "Yes, definitely. I think seeing them doing it makes you realise it's not that far away and you will get the opportunity to go on. Hopefully, I can keep progressing and do that.

"I think it's a lot about experience maybe - especially for Scott who has gone out on loan and has understood his role completely now. I probably just have to keep working hard, play well when I get the chance and show people what I can do."
