In the past few weeks there has been a touch of speculation linking Ryan Shawcross with a return to Old Trafford.

The centre-back, who left Old Trafford to go to Stoke, is a player who Sir Alex Ferguson has always intimated he regrets letting go.

However, if any sort of deal is to be done the odds of it being a smooth transaction have been hampered by the fact that Shawcross has just put pen-to-paper on the longest contract offered by Stoke City, something tells me this one is dead in the water.
