According to a report by the Blackpool Gazette, the Seasiders are tracking young Manchester United midfielders Daniel Drinkwater and Oliver Norwood.

Neither player has been included on United’s tour of America, with both playing in United’s friendly against Fleetwood in the week – a game that ‘Pool assistant boss Steve Thompson took in, presuming with a remit of watching the pair.

Drinkwater, who scored in the game against Fleetwood, is 21 and yet to make his United debut. However, he has spent time on loan at Huddersfield, Cardiff and Watford and has been capped at England U19 level.

20 year old Norwood is also yet to make an appearance for United, but has played for Carlisle on loan and has three full caps for Northern Ireland.
