Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck is unsure about his future after impressing on loan at Sunderland this season.

The 20-year-old has scored six goals in 15 starts in the league for Steve Bruce's side has led to rumours about whether his future remains at United.

But the England under-21 international isn't sure if his future is at Old Trafford.

"I have benefited from playing every week at Sunderland. You could see the benefits of playing another year on loan, but there are also negatives as well.

"I'll see what happens. I've not really been thinking about it. I had a chat with Sir Alex when I went back there for treatment.


"He is really happy with how the season has gone. He said a few things, but I'm not going to say what.

"Whatever happens in the future, this move to Sunderland has been great for me. I have grown more confident as player and person. I am better mentally. I know more about the Premier League and it has been a great benefit."

Ferguson had previously tipped Welbeck to be part of the England set-up for the 2010 World Cup but his international ambitions have stalled with the Scot reluctant to start the England under-21 international ahead of Dimitar Berbatov, Wayne Rooney or Michael Owen.

His form for The Black Cats, which saw him score his first goal for the club in the demolition of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, has sparked talk of a permanent stay at the Stadium of Light, further enhanced by the form of Mexican Javier Hernandez, United's £8 million summer signing.
