Good news: Middlesbrough breaking in with advance talks for for Man Utd player

Middlesbrough, Ipswich, Sunderland and Stoke are among the clubs keen on Manchester United’s Will Fish.


  •  The young defender Will Fish is catching the attention of various clubs due to his talent and potential for growth.
  •  Clubs like Ipswich Town and Middlesbrough, where technical ability is important, are interested in Fish for his playing style.
  •  With multiple English clubs eyeing Fish, his next move after returning to Man United in the summer will be crucial for his career progression.

Will Fish, a center-back for Manchester United, is a target for a number of teams, including Sunderland, Middlesbrough, and Ipswich Town, in the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old earned his first-team debut for the squad at the end of the 2020–21 season after rising through the ranks at Old Trafford.

To help with his development, he has had multiple loan stints from the Red Devils, as he has naturally found it difficult to get game time.

After a short stint with Stockport County, Fish has spent the past 18 months with Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership, establishing himself as an important figure for the Edinburgh side.

In the current campaign, he has featured 25 times, and whilst it has been a disappointing season for the club, Fish has impressed at the heart of the defence for Nick Montgomery.

The young player is now scheduled to return to United in the summer, but it looks like he may be moving again.

That comes after HITC reported that several teams are interested in the defender, who is under contract with the Premier League’s biggest teams through the summer of 2025, with a 12-month option.

Ipswich Town and Middlesbrough, two teams in the English Championship, are interested in Fish. Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna are both familiar with the player from their time spent working with the Manchester United academy and at Old Trafford.

HITC Football also understands that other clubs tracking his progression are Sheffield United, Hull City, Sunderland, Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City.

Hibs boss Nick Montgomery has spoken of his desire to keep Will Fish, but that looks a difficult task with a number of English sides keen on the Manchester-born stopper.”

Will Fish ready for permanent move

Given that Fish is a gifted defender with room to grow, it is not surprising that there is a lot of interest in him.

His profile would suit teams that occasionally attempt to play out from the back, such as Middlesbrough and Ipswich, as he mixes technical skill with the physicality you would expect from a center-back.

Fish needs to carefully consider his options because, despite his talent, he won’t get any playing time at United.

His development during his stay at Easter Road has been excellent, and he is now prepared for the next phase of his career, which is probably going to happen this summer.

Fish’s previous work experience with McKenna and Carrick may provide their respective clubs an advantage when it comes to signing him, but it appears like the defender may have many alluring offers available.

Another factor will also be what division the clubs are in, as the Tractor Boys in particular will hope to be able to offer Premier League football.

So, this is one to monitor when the window opens, and whoever does manage to sign Fish will be making a shrewd addition.
