Players leaving, getting sold, and new transfer windows have become the Premier League's common scenario. Today, the latest news reveals that Ben Amos, the young goalkeeper from Manchester United is set to hunt his next team. Man United's Coach Louis van Gaal has reportedly released the goal keeper and allowed him to be on the lookout for a new team. According to the Daily Mail, this incident places Manchester United to be short on its squad with a shot-stopper like Amos.

Ben Amos spent roughly around 13 years in Manchester United. He was with the team since he was 11 years old. It was in 2008, in a League Cup clash with Middlesbrough, where Amos made his debut for Manchester United. All those years, he has played for the team.

Despite years of extensive training and playing for Manchester United, it has been highly noted how Ben Amos mostly spent his play time on the bench. This seems to be the same fate of Anders Lindegaard as both shared a more preferred spot on the sidelines than on the field.

As rumours rise regarding Manchester United's interest on David De Gea to be in the team, rumours have it that it is the same reason why the Man United Dutch coach Louis van Gaal has allowed Ben Amos to go out of Man United. The interest of Man United over De Gea has widely spread following the knowledge about De Gea's number of goals who averaged 2.35 saves per goal in this season's league. There were also reports that Manchester United has also set Lindegaard.

If Lindegaard won't be sold following plans of Manchester United to release the player from the team, possible swap deals may be made. A swap deal may be used by van Gaal to Man United's advantage by using Lindergaard to bring in Orjan Nyland, Norway's keeper.

To date, Manchester United is looking to bring in a new goal keeper to complete its squad. Just recently, Manchester United snapped up former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes on a free transfer on an 18-month deal.
