Manchester United plan to release at least four youngsters at season's end.
The Manchester Evening News says United quartet Paul Woolston, Arnau Puigmal, Max Taylor and Connor Stanley will not sign new deals and are all braced to depart this summer.
Goalkeeper Woolston, 22, has been with United since 2018 after initially coming through the Newcastle academy, hailing from Tyneside.
Spanish youngster Puigmal has been touted for a move back to his homeland and, aged 20, looks likely to seek new opportunities in the summer.
Centre-back Taylor, 21, battled back from having cancer treatment to resume his United career in 2019 and has spent this season on loan at Kidderminster Harriers. He signed a one-year contract extension in May last year.
Wide player Stanley, 19, also looks set to be released by United when his deal expires on June 30th.
