West Brom have made enquiries for Manchester United’s Darren Fletcher according to Sky Sports.

The Scotland captain has not featured too heavily in Louis Van Gaal’s plans this season making just four starts for the Red Devils.

And the 30-year-old has struggled to replicate performances of yesteryear as the current boss prefers the likes of Juan Mata, Angel di Maria, Daley Blind and Ander Herrera ahead of him.

Recruitment drive

Sky Sports reported on Wednesday morning that West Brom had made enquiries for the Manchester United veteran as Tony Pulis begins his recruitment drive at the Hawthorns.

The Baggies have been struggling in the central midfield department in recent weeks with Claudio Yacob and Youssouf Mulumbu hardly setting the world on fire.

Darren the odds

Fletcher would perhaps not have been expecting to still be in the game at this stage of his career after he underwent several operations to help him overcome a chronic battle with ulcerative colitis during 2013.

But since the retirement of Ryan Giggs, Fletcher has gone on to become Manchester United’s longest serving incumbent player having made his debut nearly 12 years ago.

Among his honours list are five league titles and one Champions League winner’s medal –so the Scot could bring vital experience to West Brom whose most decorated player in English football, by quite some margin, is Joleon Lescott who won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and a League Cup with Manchester City.
