Manchester United release five players including Tom Cleverley and Tom Thorpe

Manchester United have released five players including Tom Cleverley and Tom Thorpe as the summer clear-out begins at the club.

It comes as no surprise to see Cleverley or Amos released by the club but there will be plenty of frustrated fans now that Thorpe has officially left Man United.

The 2011 FA Youth Cup winning captain went on to captain the U21s to three titles in the last four years but was never given a proper chance with the first-team.

The five players released are: Tom Cleverley, Ben Amos, Tom Thorpe, Ryan McConnell and Callum Evans.
