Manchester United will have to sack David Moyes for Marnick Vermijl to have any future at the club, according to the agent of the young Belgian defender. Vermijl is currently on loan to Eredivisie club NEC and, it would appear, his prospects of a full-time return are slim.

Vermijl made his professional debut for Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson last season, with a solitary appearance in the League Cup, and would have been hopeful of adding to this once the new manager was appointed in the summer.

It soon became apparent, however, that the 22-year-old full-back was not in the plans of Moyes, and he was allowed to leave on loan shortly after the close of the summer transfer window. The manner in which Moyes sanctioned the move away from Old Trafford clearly the irked the player and his agent, with the latter seeing little chance of a reintegration at Manchester United.

Tony Dullers believes the only way his client will forge a career with Manchester United will be if Moyes is relieved of his duties which, for all the conjecture around the manager's position, would appear to be beyond unlikely given the backing he retains from Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton.

“[Manchester United] want Marnick at a better club to work next season. But a new loan does not sit well. He will either get his chance in the first team, or permanently move out,” Dullers told Belgian publication De Morgan.

He is under contract with United until June 2015, but much depends on the situation of David Moyes. If he remains coach, then it does not look good, because he let Marnick go to NEC quite easily. Moyes being fired opens prospects."
