The immediate future of former Nigeria U17 trainee Malcolm Ebiowei has been one of the talking point of this summer transfer window as he nears the end of his contract with relegated English Championship side Derby County.
Ebiowei was one of the few success story of what was a very difficult season for Derby County which started with a hefty point deduction that later .ed a role in their demotion to the English third tier.
He signed a one year deal when he joined on a free transfer from Scottish side Rangers and his deal will expire by the end of the month, making him free to join any club and as expected he has offers from top teams.
Crystal Palace, West Ham United and Manchester United are the three teams rumoured to be keen on signing him this summer with Manchester United reportedly having an edge over their rivals.
Aside from the fact that they are the biggest among the teams interested in signing the 18 year old. Wayne Rooney who gave him a shot at senior football is a legend of the club and want him to join them.
Rooney is said to have told the winger who trained with the 2019 U17 team to accept a move to United, w. it is expected that he will be loaned out to gain more experience with new coach Erik Ten Haag set to begin a rebuilding of the club.
A decision is expected to be known by the end of the month with the winger also keen on sorting out his future on time so he can be available for pre season with his new team. He made 16 appearances last season with a goal to his name. He is a nephew to the first assistant coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Finidi George.
