Darren Fletcher does not wish to move to Everton for first-team football but intends to rise to the challenge at United.

I’ve recently written an appraisal of Fletcher and concluded that I would understand his desire for regular action but would be sad to see him leave. Needn’t have worried it seems.

“You just learn to deal with that (transfer speculation) as your time progresses here.

“The most important thing is you`re focused on Manchester United. Unless someone tells you otherwise, that`s what you do.”

“To play in more matches than last season, that`s obviously the target each season,”

“You do your bit, you`re patient and you`ve got to wait for your chance. I`ll be ready to take my chance when it comes and I`ll hopeful play a few more matches.”

‘Competition for places is always going to be at Manchester United.’

“It`s something you`ve got to rise to.”
