'Next Paul Scholes' could leave Manchester United

Manchester United teenager Nick Powell could leave the club during the summer transfer window in order to gain valuable first-team action elsewhere, with Doncaster keen to sign the midfielder on loan.

Powell made only two Premier League appearances during his first season at Old Trafford following his transfer from Crewe and, according to the Daily Mail, Doncaster want to acquire the services of the 19-year-old on a temporary basis.

Despite his minimal action last term, Powell impressed when called upon - scoring from outside the box against Wigan during his first outing in the league - with his performances leading to comparisons with Manchester United legend Paul Scholes.

"Nick Powell is going to be a really good player," Sir Alex Ferguson said last season.

"He has a great temperament, is two-footed and quick. He is a good physical specimen and has terrific vision.

"We hope Powell fills Paul Scholes' boots."

It remains unclear if new Manchester United manager David Moyes would consider allowing Powell to leave the club on loan, but Doncaster are ready to make an enquiry to gauge the availability of the youngster.

Donny manager Paul Dickov reportedly wants Powell to play a prominent role for the club following their return to the Championship.
