BLACKPOOL could be set to make a move for Manchester United prospect Danny Drinkwater.

Pool assistant boss Steve Thompson ran the rule over the midfielder on Tuesday night, when the 21-year-old capped an impressive display with a goal for a Manchester United XI in their 2-0 win at Fleetwood Town.

He is yet to make a senior appearance for the Premier League champions but has played over 50 times in loan spells with Huddersfield, Cardiff and Watford.

Drinkwater’s fellow United midfielder Oliver Norwood could also be interesting Pool.

The 20-year-old is believed to be another who caught the eye against Fleetwood, Norwood has won three Northern Ireland caps without having made a senior appearance for his club.
