Friendly Fryers?

Could Zeki Fryers be about to follow in Danny Simpson's footsteps by becoming a Mancunian full-back who swapped Old Trafford for St James'? According to the Manchester Evening News, the young Red Devil is being pursued by ourselves as well as Spurs and (more improbably) Burnley. Might the thinking be to bring him in on the left with Davide Santon switching over to the right to replace contract rebel Simpson? Or are we just keen to recruit naturally left-footed back-up for Santon, with Ryan Taylor favouring his right and Shane Ferguson apparently viewed more as a winger these days? We'll see - but it's certainly true that the full-back positions are worthy of attention.

The comments thread at the bottom of the article paints a mixed picture - some Man Utd fans claim Fryers is a decent locally-born talent who shouldn't be allowed to leave, while others are critical of his apparent greed and impatience. If he does sign, then let's hope it's the former qualities that come to the fore.

No offence, but if Spurs and ourselves are interested then do you really think Burnley stand a realistic chance of signing him?
