Manchester United reserve team defender Marnick Vermijl could join Dutch giants Ajax at the end of the season.

English radio station talkSPORT believe the Belgium starlet could be heading out of Old Trafford in the summer.

Vermijl, who joined Manchester United from Standard Liege in 2010, has struggled to break into the Premier League champions' first team.

The 22-year-old right-back has been unable to bypass first choice defender Rafael da Silva since joining the club.

Vermijl has even been overlooked when Rafael has been out injured or suspended, as Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes have both chosen to play either Phil Jones or Chris Smalling ahead of the youngster.

The Belgium Under-21 starlet, who is out of contract in the summer, is reportedly attracting interest from Ajax, Genk and Anderlecht.

Vermijl's only appearance at Manchester United during his four-year spell at the club came in the Capital One Cup against Newcastle United in September 2012.

The young defender's departure from the club will be the least of Moyes' worries, as he could lose at least three senior players in the summer.
