Vermijl sounds warning over Man Utd future

According to his agent, Manchester United defender Marnick Vermijl is looking to make the first-team squad next season or may leave the club. The 22-year-old, who is under contract at Old Trafford until 2015, is currently on a season-long loan at Dutch club NEC.

But his agent Tonny Dullers told Belgium media: "Man United is happy with his progress. They want to loan him to a better team next season, but Marnick isn't keen on it.

"He wants to be promoted to the first team squad or a transfer. He still has a contract until 2015, but a lot depends on (Manchester United manager David) Moyes' future.

"If he stays, he'll probably let Marnick go, as he didn't oppose a loan. But if he is sacked, then maybe Marnick still has a future at Man United."

Regarding potential suitors, Dullers added: "I've a meeting with Genk's general manager Dirk Degraen next week and I'll meet the board of Anderlecht later on. Also Ajax and a few other Premier League teams made an enquiry.

"England is still our favourite destination, but the player's also open to a move to Belgium or Holland."
