Manchester United manager David Moyes has insisted that Danny Welbeck is “really important” to both him and the club in response to stories regarding the striker’s future at Old Trafford.

It has been suggested that Welbeck is considering quitting the Red Devils at the end of the season after growing frustrated at being played in various positions across the forward line.

But Moyes quashed those reports and explained that he “really values” the England international, who has a further two years left on his present contract with Manchester United.

"Danny Welbeck's really important to me and I really value him", the manager told his club’s official site.


"As you well know, there have been lots of stories [in general].

"I can only tell you Danny Welbeck is really important – to me and to Manchester United."

Welbeck, who came on as a second-half substitute during Manchester United’s 2-0 loss to Everton yesterday, has scored 10 goals in all competitions for his side in the current campaign.

The 23-year-old forward has 21 caps and eight goals for England to his name.
