Grayson said: "We've got a couple of lads on trial and as ever we'll take a look at them over the next few days."

Meanwhile midfielder Jonny Howson has been called up to the England U21 squad for the match against Italy in Empoli.

Grayson added:"I'm delighted for Jonny , he's been terrific for us this season. He fully deserves his call and it will be a great experience for him. He's a great professional, a real hard worker and he's a real talent."

Howson, aged 22, is the first United player to receive a call up since Fabian Delph in 2008.
