Paul Pogba has had his loan-move to Burnley delayed, according to The Sun, because the 18-year-old is set to make a debut for the senior Manchester United side when they take on Leeds in the Carling Cup.

Pogba has reportedly been close to signing a deal with Burnley to move to the club temporarily, for around six months, and gain some game experience.

Burnley chief Eddie Howe was at United’s match up with Fulham in the reserves on the weekend to watch the wonderkid, and is said to be trying to work out a six month deal for Pogba to move to Turf Moor.


But Sir Alex Ferguson has 'promised' that Pogba will play against Leeds in four days, meaning that the 18-year-old will have to wait before he can make the move.

United are known for sending youngsters on short loan spells, and after the successful returns of Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley from loan-spells, Ferguson is very keen for Pogba to leave United in the short term.
