Ex-Salford defender Sadiq El-Fitouri makes Man Utd cut

Former Salford City defender Sadiq El-Fitouri has made Manchester United's Premier League squad.

The defender was signed from non-league minnows Salford City in January last year, says the Daily Star.

He's yet to make an appearance for the first-team, but could now be in with a shot at making his debut.

United are allowed to name 25 senior players in their squad, with players under the age of 21 able to supplement Jose Mourinho's roster.

And El-Fitouri, a former Manchester City junior, has made the cut.

The 21-year-old is a regular in Warren Joyce's reserve side last season and signed a new one-year contract over the summer.
