Despite widespread rumours on forums that the player has agreed a three and a half year deal, ClaretandHugh has been told within the last few minutes: “There’s no deal.”
And we also learned that the player will need to face a very stern medical should the club decide to push things further down the road.
A top insider told us exclusively a few minutes ago: “There’s no deal on Fletcher at this stage. He hasn’t even had a medical yet and were we to go further with this, we would do a very strict medical.”
Whilst Sam Allardyce is desperately keen to push a deal through there remains much doubt about taking the player among important Boleyn ‘faces.’
One said: “It’s very much a Sam deal. Some of us aren’t so sure. He’s obviously out of favour at Old Trafford.
“There are doubts among several of us here and as I say he’ll face a very strong medical before we even consider taking it further.”
