The released Man Utd players that should interest the Imps

This is one I’ve talked about before, but I can talk about it with some security now knowing he has been released. Man Utd have a good pedigree with young keepers, Sam Johnstone and Dean Henderson being two who have rolled off their production line. I’m not sure O’Hara would have been released had he not been banned whilst playing for Burton, but it has sealed his fate.

I saw him for Macclesfield (not Mansfield as per a previous typo) a couple of times and thought he was outstanding, then he edged Dimitar Evitmov out at Burton and claimed their number one spot. I firmly believe this is a keeper on the up and someone who would be a great signing for City.

O’Hara is 24, so not the youth many assume, which I think is a good age to bring him in. Not only that, but he’s represented the Republic of Ireland at Under 21 and senior level, which I suspect will mean he already knows a handful of our lads. He’s going to be in high demand though I feel, especially after his solid loan outings.
