Oliver Norwood has confirmed he is leaving Manchester United this summer in search of regular first-team football.

The Northern Ireland international has turned down a new deal at Old Trafford as he seeks a move elsewhere.

The 21-year-old, who is a product of United's famed academy, enjoyed spells on loan at Scunthorpe and Coventry last season.

A number of clubs have been alerted to Norwood's availability this summer with the classy midfielder impressing during his loan stints.

"I have decided to leave Manchester United as I feel the time is right for a new challenge," Norwood told skysports.com.

"I have loved my time at United, I got the taste for first-team football out on loan and I want to be playing first-team football on a regular basis

"I will now wait and see what offers come my way before making a decision on my future."
