After a news article claimed United are close to losing one of their young stars, fans have reacted with confusion online. 

The Yorkshire Evening Post has claimed that Sunderland are among the clubs in talks with Niall Huggins regarding a permanent transfer.

It went on to explain that over the summer, it has been made clear that Huggins is no longer part of Marcelo Bielsa’s plans, and a move away was the most likely outcome for the youngster.

Chief football writer at the Yorkshire Evening Post, Graham Smyth, shared his article on Twitter and it soon drew the attention of a number of supporters.

Here’s what these fans had to say…

“Getting rid of Huggins would be a huge loss… Lad has bags of talent…”

“Just don’t get it, watched Huggins last 2 seasons in U23s one of the better players in a very good squad, now could be gone for peanuts and not given much of a chance in the first team..”
“Looks to be permanent. He’s a good player but I did hear rumblings of a falling out so not in Bielsa’s plans.”

The 20-year-old looks to have a decent career potentially ahead of him having made an appearance against Arsenal in the Premier League last season.

With that in mind, it’s understandable why these fans feel a little bemused that their club seem set to allow Huggins to leave on a permanent basis.
