Manchester United academy talent Logan Pye has revealed he has had surgery and will miss the rest of the season.

The full-back has struggled for fitness and featured only four times for the under-21 side this season, the most recent coming in August.

Pye did manage to make the bench for the under-21 win over Liverpool in January but was an unused substitute.

He since appears to have suffered a major setback as he will now miss the rest of the season.

Logan Pye ruled out for the season

Logan Pye posted a message on Instagram from a hospital bed, vowing to recover stronger after having surgery.

He wrote: “Disappointing way to start the year to end my season early, however the surgery went well and I’ll be back doing what I love.”

Manchester United signed Logan Pye from Sunderland in 2020 along with striker Joe Hugill.

The England youth international was an early standout in the under-18s, but injuries have held back his progress, even before this season.

Pye has only five under-21 appearances and the 19-year-old has not kicked on as he would have liked.

Last season the left-back played twice in Manchester United’s FA Youth Cup winning campaign, including starting the quarter-final against Everton. He was an unused substitute in the final.
