Joe Coll admits he asked to be released from his contract at Manchester United.
The Irish youngster is seeking a new club in England.
“I had a frustrating season at United’s Academy with the lack of opportunities so spoke to the management there and decided to consider my options,” he told the Donegal Democrat. “A loan was more or less out of the question as I’m still relatively inexperienced and there’s a lot of hassle as a youth player if you’re trying to get back to the Airtricity League.
“I weighed up the pros and cons of everything and took the decision to move on. At United they look after you well but they have so many options. I’m going to England next week looking to find a club. All I want is a chance to show what I can do and it takes a week at a trial for a club to see that. I know I’ve taken a gamble but hopefully everything will work out.”
