Manchester United youngster Will Fish is already the target of interest for two clubs heading into the summer transfer window.

Fish spent last season on loan at Hibernian, helping the side to an impressive fifth placed finish in the Scottish Premiership.

After earning a spot as a regular starter in the second half of the season, it is unsurprising that Hibernian are reported by The Mail to be keen on bringing him back for another loan.

He played 21 games this past season, and Hibernian now have competition for his signature.

Will Fish tug of war

The Mail report that Sir Alex Ferguson’s former side Aberdeen are also now interested in acquiring Fish on loan.

Aberdeen finished two places higher than Hibernian this past season, in third place, five points better off.

Manchester United and Fish will have to decide together what is best for the defender, and whether he needs a new challenge.

With the competition for his signature just beginning, there is a chance one of the two clubs makes a permanent transfer offer to United.

For the right price it is very possible that Manchester United do sanction an exit for the 20-year-old centre-back.

Fish has made great progress during his first loan spell, showing he can perform at a competitive level after stepping up from academy football.

But the leap required to Manchester United’s first team is a huge one, and to stand a chance, Fish probably needs to forget the Scottish Premiership, and aim for a Championship loan to prove his worth for another 12 months.

The young defender will have to consider his options over the coming weeks.
