Manchester United are looking to take advantage of Derby County’s precarious position and sign promising youngster Malcolm Ebiowei this summer.

The teenager previously featured at both Arsenal and Rangers but failed to make it to either club before making a big breakthrough with the Rams last season.

Although the East Midlands club faced an inevitable relegation to League One after being penalized with 21 points over financial irregularities, the performances of some of their youngest talent gave optimism for the future.

Rooney gave talented winger Ebiowei his senior debut in February and went on to make 15 appearances, scoring his first professional goal in a 2-0 win at Blackpool.

After the 18-year-old impressed in March’s 1-1 draw with Coventry, Rooney was full of praise for a player he believed had an extremely bright future.

He said: “I thought he was excellent throughout the game, the best player on the pitch. It was one of the best performances I’ve seen from a young player in a long time, consistently for 90 minutes.

“He deserved this because he worked extremely hard. His attitude is incredible, he wants to learn and he’s an exciting young player.

“First of all, his attitude is very good. He has tremendous skill, he’s brave, he takes the ball, he’s not afraid to confront players, to be tackled, to make mistakes. So he has a really bright future.”

United are likely to face competition to sign a player whose contract expires next month. Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Tottenham are all eyeing the youngster, who has represented both England and Holland at youth level.
