Fletcher recommends Stoke defender Collins to Man Utd

Darren Fletcher has recommended Stoke City defender Nathan Collins to Manchester United.

Fletcher joined the first team coaching panel at United this year.

And The Sun says Collins' old team-mate Fletcher has pushed his cause at United. But they have yet to make a move.

The bidding could even start this week ahead of a deadline deal. Potters will look for more than £10m but an offer in that range could seal the transfer.

Suitors Arsenal would have to find the cash while Burnley have funds available.

Crystal Palace are also keen as they have several defenders out of contract this summer.
