Manchester United whizkid Danny Welbeck is delighted with his promotion to Sir Alex Ferguson's first team squad for the second-half of the season.

"I'm trying to get as many goals as possible," he told MUTV. "I scored again for the U18s and I want to keep on scoring goals."

But the lure of first-team football is intense, especially after his experience on United's whistle-stop tour of Saudi Arabia.

"It was great," the Manchester-born forward declared. "The players and the coaches were all really welcoming. They helped me get through it all. The training was so quick, but it was a good experience.

"It was a shame that I missed the penalty, but I'm over that now. I hope I can be involved with the first team more often, which can only help me improve as a player."
