What happened to the 15 players released by Manchester United?

Manchester United released 15 players back in June and not all of them have yet found new clubs.

The majority of those released were youngsters, along with Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia.

Herrera signed a lucrative deal with Paris Saint-Germain, while Valencia returned to Ecuador, signing with club LDU Quito – after a surprise link to Sheffield United.

The young players released have had mixed fortunes, signing with teams in England, Italy, Scotland and Holland.

Here is a look at who has ended up where and who is yet to secure a move.

Still looking

Finding a move has not been easy for all, as evidenced by Whelan and Buffonge only agreeing moves in the past week.

Zak Dearnley is still looking, and has been on trial at Rotherham, following a link to Turkish side Bursaspor in July.

Talented youngster Callum Gribbin is without a club, along with ex-Ajax attacker Millen Baars.

Tom Sang, Tyrell Warren and James Thompson are all also currently free agents.
