After 12 years, Ben Amos announces Man Utd departure

Ben Amos has announced he's leaving Manchester United at the end of the season.

The goalkeeper will cut 12 years of ties this summer and seek another club.

"Being a United fan, I've always believed I can play for Manchester United and always aspired to be a Manchester United player," Amos, currently on-loan with Bolton Wanderers, told the Manchester Evening News.

"You could say Victor's arrival was the final nail in the coffin. Pre-season, I was told I was number two. With the cup games, if I'd got a sniff of that, that would have made it worthwhile sticking around for.

"As soon as Victor was brought in, I was essentially demoted to fourth really. Fourth-choice goalkeeper, you've got to move on.

"If I'm being totally honest because I am a United fan is why I've hung around a little bit more than I should have.

"But I don't regret anything. I've learnt every day and pushed myself every day. I've given it everything I have to make it at United.

"That's what I wanted to do. Now I have to look forward and there's a future after United."
