Two Man Utd players train with Moore's Sheffield Wednesday

Two Manchester United youngsters are spending time with Darren Moore's Sheffield Wednesday.

A number of United's players between U17-U23 are to have the opportunity to experience a senior football environment over the coming season.

United report "Players will gain a true taste of the Football League environment, enjoying varying periods with clubs distinct from a formal loan move, experiencing first-hand the training standards and situations that come in the build-up to important matches".

The first two players - unnamed - are already benefitting from the programme by spending time with Sheffield Wednesday this week.

United's Head of Academy Nick Cox said: “This programme represents an excellent development opportunity for our players. In the Academy, we are always looking to be innovative in order to provide the best experiences for all of our boys. The opportunity enables players to learn new behaviours and witness first-hand the standards of a first-team environment.

“We know that they will return to Carrington with a renewed sense of purpose that will benefit the individual and the wider training group. Justin Cochrane has been pivotal in establishing this initiative, it is thanks to a number of fantastic relationships that we have been able to establish a really exciting experience for the Professional Development Phase group.

“We want to thank Sheffield Wednesday for their ongoing support and look forward to seeing the numerous benefits that this programme will bring for our players both on and off the pitch."
