Man Utd duo omitted from Premier League squad as January exits loom

Manchester United have omitted Phil Jones and Sergio Romero from their 25-man Premier League squad.

Defender Jones and goalkeeper Romero were both also left out of United’s Champions League squad earlier this month after falling out of favour under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Their omissions cast doubt over their long-term future at Old Trafford, with January exits on the cards.

Romero was tipped to join Everton, Aston Villa and Leeds in the latter stages of the summer window.

During his introductory press conference, the 21-year-old reflected on how he had developed at United, although admitting he still has room for improvement.
