Man Utd boss Solskjaer promotes 4 academy kids - including Shoretire

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has promoted four kids for their busy Christmas programme.

The youngsters have been training with the first team ahead of the game against Nuno Espirito Santos' Wolves.

One of those involved at Carrington was Ethan Laird, who has been a regular recently in defence for the U23s. Will Fish was also spotted training with the first team after a run of impressive games with the U23s side.

Versatile forward Anthony Elanga has also been given the nod to train with the first team, having featured in every U23s game so far this season, and bagging four goals.

The Sweden U17 international can play on both wings and up front, meaning he could be a great option off the bench.

Finally, there is plenty of excitement around the next man to be called up - Shola Shoretire.

Shoretire became the youngster player ever to appear in the UEFA Youth Cup at 14, and has gone from strength to strength since then.
