Man Utd draft teenager Kehinde into first-team training

Manchester United are currently 15 points behind the Premier League leaders, and the Portuguese once again has them in his sights

Manchester United drafted youngster Tosin Kehinde into first-team training prior to their Premier League clash with West Brom on Sunday.

The Red Devils are without Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick against the Baggies, while star midfielder Paul Pogba is suspended for the encounter.

Scott McTominay started against Bournemouth in midweek, along with Nemanja Matic, as United won 1-0.

Ander Herrera is fit and could play against the Baggies, meaning it is unlikely that Kehinde will be thrown in at the deep end by starting against West Brom.

Kehinde is primarily a left midfielder, but he is versatile, and has played both in the middle and on the right of midfield.

A stunning strike against Chelsea caught the attention of many United fans, and he has made nine appearances for the club's Under-23 side this season.

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Kehinde missed the entirety of the 2014-15 season due to a back injury, but will hope to make up for lost time by featuring with the senior squad way ahead of time.
