Ben Amos recalled back to Manchester United

Richard Heathcote

Manchester United continue to do some shuffling with their youngsters in the early stages of the January transfer window as the latest move is Ben Amos being recalled from his loan at Hull City. The 22-year-old goalkeeper confirmed this himself through his Twitter account today:

"Just heard United have officially recalled me. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there whilst playin, a great bunch of lads and a club worthy of where they are. Thanks to them for the opportunity and to everyone who supported me and the lads. I’ll hold very fond memories"

The move seemed a bit odd to me at first, but when I looked up Amos' recent appearances for Hull City, I noticed that he hadn't made an appearance in the Championship since November 17. David Stockdale and Eldin Jakupovic seemed to have been preferred in goal as of late. Amos, though, had featured 17 times for the side that currently sits second in the Championship table.

David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard are clearly established as United's top two 'keepers while 19-year-old Sam Johnstone has been third-choice this season. It's possible that the latter is sent out on loan this month and if that were to happen, Amos would presumably be the new third-choice goalkeeper. The U-21 England international has made one Premier League start and several League Cup starts prior to his recent loan to Hull City.
