Manchester United will release youngster Jack Barmby, Sam Byrne and Jack Rudge as part of a summer clearout, reports the Daily Mail.

Barmby, son of former Tottenham and Everton midfielder Nick, has spent the majority of 2014 on loan to League Two side Hartlepool. He has so far scored five goals in 17 appearances, including goals in each of his last two games  against Morecambe and Plymouth.

The attacking midfielder, who has four England under-19 caps under his belt, has been attracting interest from lower league clubs and will be available for free from Old Trafford.

Manchester United will also show the door to Dublin-born striker Byrne, who has struggled to impress whilst on loan to Crewe Alexandra this season. The 18-year-old played a part in all of United's UEFA Youth League games but has failed to convince Carrington coaches that he has the potential to play with the likes of Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata in the first team.

Finally Rudge, a versatile midfielder who is also capable of playing at full-back will returned to Manchester after an unsuccessful loan spell with Torquay.

The 19-year-old has worked his way through the Manchester United youth system since he was seven but is set to end his association with the Red Devils this summer.

They're likely to be followed by a number of other struggling youth team members exiting Manchester United this summer as they look to freshen up the youth system.

Their departures will likely go unnoticed with the first team set for an incredible overhaul under a new manager. Louis van Gaal is believed to be in line to succeed David Moyes and will be handed a budget of up to £200m with a long list of world-class targets on his mind.
