Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was impressed by David de Gea's midweek performance at Cluj but will continue rotating his goalkeepers for the immediate future.

De Gea, 21, who joined United for a reported £18.9million last year, was dropped after the opening two Barclays Premier League games of the season. The Spaniard has returned in the Champions League and Capital One Cup but has lost his number one status with Anders Lindegaard taking over for the last four league matches.

Ferguson must now decide whether to retain De Gea or switch back to Dane Lindegaard for the trip to Newcastle, and he said: "He (De Gea) was excellent, he is an outstanding goalkeeper, the young lad, he is getting better all the time. I don't know whether I should play him on Sunday or not but the way we have been doing it in the last few weeks has worked quite well for us."
