Sir Alex named him as one for the future and he was the recipient of the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of The Year at the end of this past season so it’s easy to see why Peterborough are sniffing around him, hoping to take the 18 year old on loan next season.
Director of football Barry Fry sounded him out him as a player Peterborough are keeping an eye on in the Peterborough Evening Telegraph and current manager and son of Sir Alex, Darren Ferguson, has expressed an admiration for the all action midfielder in the same newspaper,
“I have seen Ryan in action and he is a very good player.
“But I don’t even know if United are going to loan him out anywhere. Ryan has not been sent out anywhere in his career, but he is already a very, very good player.
“He is one of numerous players I have shown an interest in, but that’s as far as it’s gone so far.”
