Earlier this week we reported on how young Tom Cleverley had so impressed during his season long loan spell at Watford that United were looking to tie him to a longer contract.

We also speculated as to whether Sir Alex Ferguson would feel that another season on loan would be beneficial to young Tom.

Well today it`s being reported that Tom has signed a three year contract and that both Blackpool and Newcastle are looking at taking Tom on loan for the season.

Both clubs, of course, were promoted from the Championship last season and it`s difficult to predict anything but a hard struggle for either to remain in the Premier League beyond next season.

But, if Tom were to go to either, he`d be guaranteed more first team football than he would be, currently, at Old Trafford. There`s also the prospect of Sir Alex watching on to see how a season of top flight action aids his development.

If I had to plump for one of the two, I`d send him to Newcastle, it could be quite an experience!
