New defensive talent promoted to senior Man Utd training

Manchester United have added Will Fish to their first team training this week.

Fish has trained with the Manchester United first-team ahead of the Europa League quarter-final second leg against Granada.

The 18-year-old joined in Tuesday's session at Carrington with United short on numbers at the back ahead of the Old Trafford fixture, reports the Manchester Evening News.

Fish has been a regular in Premier League 2 this season, making 17 appearances in that competition for Neil Wood's side. His promotion to first-team training this week comes with Harry Maguire suspended for the second leg against the La Liga side, while Eric Bailly is due to return this week after self-isolating in the Ivory Coast.

Fish is not currently listed in the Europa League squad.

He was joined at first-team training by fellow academy graduates Shola Shoretire, 17, and Anthony Elanga, 18, who have been more regular fixtures around the senior side in recent weeks.
