Manchester United have allowed goalkeeper Ben Amos to join Championship side Bolton Wanderers on a one-month loan deal.

The 24-year-old has been snapped up by Bolton boss Neil Lennon to provide cover for the injured Adam Bogdan, who will miss the next six weeks with an ankle injury.

This is according to BBC Sport, who also understand that Bolton have agreed a new deal with midfielder Neil Danns.

Amos, a product of Manchester United’s youth academy, has made a total of seven appearances for the Red Devils since turning professional in 2008.

The former England Under-21 international has spent time out on loan with a host of Football League clubs - including the likes of Oldham Athletic and Carlisle United - over the past six years and will now be tasked with helping mid-table Bolton keep some valuable clean sheets over the next month.

Amos set to leave United this summer

Amos looks set to leave Manchester United at the end of the season, when his contract expires, after being relegated to fourth-choice goalkeeper following the arrival of former Barcelona star Victor Valdes earlier this month.

David de Gea is currently the undisputed number one at Old Trafford, followed by Valdes and Anders Lindegaard, who has also been deemed surplus to requirements by United boss Louis van Gaal.

Manchester United have yet to reach an agreement with De Gea regarding a new contract. The Spain international now has less than 18-months to run on his current deal, and speculation linking the 24-year-old with a move to Real Madrid continues to intensify.

Vanja Milinković-Savić

Regardless of whether De Gea stays or goes, it seems Van Gaal has made his mind up over Amos, who will almost certainly begin the 2015-16 campaign with a new club.

Shortly before Van Gaal arrived at Old Trafford, Manchester United secured the services of Serbian Under-18 international Vanja Milinković-Savić, a highly-rated 17-year-old currently back on loan with Vojvodina.

Van Gaal may regard the teenager as a more promising long-term option for the future than Amos.
