Louis van Gaal has confirmed that Darren Fletcher is undergoing a medical at West Ham.

He is now at West Ham, I believe, so we have to wait and see. He is my third captain so he is an important guy in the dressing room. I like him as a person and as a human being so we shall miss him. But he hasn’t played so many times and that is always the main goal of a player. We have talked about that and he preferred to play. Therefore, we have helped him to go away. It is a loss and, for the club that buys him, he is another player with a lot of quality – as a midfielder, but also as a captain and a very experienced player. We also have another experienced player in the same role, so that is the problem here.
