Highly-rated 16-year-old defender Harry Amass spotted in Man Utd first-team training ahead of Fulham game

Highly-rated 16-year-old defender Harry Amass spotted in Man Utd first-team training ahead of Fulham game

Luke Shaw could miss the Euros after sustaining a serious leg injury.

One of the biggest prospects in Manchester United's academy was spotted in first-team training ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash against Fulham.

Harry Amass, 16, has played a key role for Adam Lawrence's U18s side this season – a team that have won 12 out of their last 14 Premier League North games.

The promising left-back, who joined United from Championship side Watford last summer, was promoted to first-team training ahead of this month's trip to Aston Villa.

And with United having no recognised left-back at the moment after Luke Shaw was ruled out for "a few months" of the season with a leg injury, Amass featured again ahead of Saturday's game against Fulham.

Amass was joined by Habeeb Ogunneye and James Nolan for Thursday's session at Carrington.

United's lack of options at left-back are evident. Shaw suffered the leg injury during last weekend's Premier League win at Luton, so he will likely miss the rest of the season.

Tyrell Malacia, who has not played for United since June last year, is also sidelined with a long-term injury, while Sergio Reguilon's loan deal was terminated in January.

Victor Lindelof has been deployed as a left-back in the past and Diogo Dalot has filled in at times, but Aaron Wan-Bissaka's absence means United are also short of right-sided full-backs.

Amass, meanwhile, has impressed in the position for United's U18s side this season. In fact, a compilation of his performance has been doing the rounds on social media.

Amass has yet to make his senior bow but the teenager was named on the bench last season when Watford came up against Reading in the FA Cup third round.

After the game, he said: "The first-team experience was surreal. You're playing with footballers you see on TV. I had a couple of training sessions with them and got used to it, and being on the bench and seeing the fans was really good."
