CHARLIE SAVAGE is being eyed up by Championship duo Cardiff and Rotherham.

And the Manchester United starlet, 20, has also attracted interest from League One outfit Portsmouth.

Savage, son of ex-Wales and Leicester midfielder Robbie, is wanted by clubs on loan or possibly a permanent move.

The Wales Under-21 international spent last season on loan at Forest Green Rovers.

Despite relegation for Forest Green to League Two, highly-rated Savage impressed on his first spell away from the Red Devils.

He returned to Old Trafford this summer and was made captain for the second half of United’s pre-season 2-0 win over Leeds in Oslo last Wednesday.

But Savage is not in Erik ten Hag‘s squad for today’s friendly against Lyon in Edinburgh and is unlikely to go on tour to the United States as clubs circle.

United have also welcomed back seasoned internationals and fellow midfielders Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes, Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay for the tour which will leave limited space for younger players.

Cardiff, who recently signed Wales captain Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer, cannot pay fees for players until January so a loan would suit the Welsh club’s needs.

Savage joined Man Utd’s academy as a youngster before rising through the ranks to sign his first professional contract in April 2021.


He made his first team debut eight months later, but he is yet to establish himself as a regular name in Ten Hag’s squad.

The 20-year-old scored one goal in 15 appearances during his six-month loan at Forest Green Rovers last season.
