United’s high hopes for Gore

Gore has received interest from domestic sides about taking the midfielder on loan but United are determined to hold onto the midfielder.

Travis Binnon, who has taken control of United’s under-21s this season, was asked on Tuesday night about the midfielder’s future.

“You’d have to ask the manager that, I’m not too sure,” Binnion said. “He’s with them [first-team] every day, he’s doing really well up there and I think you can see from pre-season and from the performance the other night, he’s improving by being with them.”

Gore signed a new contract in July and it now seems the midfielder could receive first-team opportunities under ten Hag.

Gore’s performances praised

Speaking after United u21’s penalty shootout victory against Stockport County, Binnon was full of praise for the midfielder’s competitive nature.

“Regarding his performance tonight, he’s always competitive, ” Binnon said. “He’s got real good quality and I think the way he’s driven with the ball and left senior players behind was excellent. His character [impresses me] as well.

“He was on one leg and he was still pressing. He’s a really good player and we’re really pleased with his progression.”

The midfielder, who often captained the academy side, will be hoping he can feature in some capacity under the Dutch manager.
