Fletcher to leave on free transfer

Manchester United will give Darren Fletcher a free transfer so he can move to another club during the current transfer window.

The 30-year-old Scotland captain has made 342 appearances in a 12-year career at United but has only started five times under Louis van Gaal.

Fletcher, whose contract expires this summer, has been linked with a move to either West Brom or West Ham.

Fletcher has risen through the ranks at Old Trafford and made his senior United debut in 2003.
He has won the Premier League title five times.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has confirmed his interest in signing Fletcher, who is currently the longest serving player in the United squad, but said his side "can't wait forever."

"When he makes his mind up everyone will know" added Allardyce.
"I don't know what the timeline is, if any of the other packages offered to him are accepted then we would accept that."

Fletcher was an unused substitute on Monday night as United's Under 21s beat rivals Liverpool 2-1 in a game that saw Victor Valdes make his United debut. 

Darren has been a loyal servant for United and we wish him all the best for the future.
