Nick Powell has been training with the first team squad after joining us from Crewe and is in the manager’s plans for the pre-season tour.

He is enjoying life at United so far… despite getting nutmegged on his first day.

“I went straight into working with the first team on some possession work – although I got nutmegged on my first day,” said Powell. “It was much more relaxed at Crewe and you felt in a comfort zone there, but now I’m here I know I have to work hard every day and be at my best. Having that challenge will only help me progress.”
