Ashley Fletcher is already looking to next season, after he’s hopefully helped Barnsley to another win at Wembley in the play-off final, with him looking to break into the Manchester United side.

He’s told the official website how appreciative he’s been to Barnsley for the chance he’s been given and feels he’ll return to Old Trafford ‘a better player’ for this spell at Oakwell but he’s intent on making his breakthrough at his parent club.

‘I’d like to thank the club for giving me the opportunity to come and play games. I feel like I’ll be going back to Manchester United as a better player.’

Fletcher added his U21 boss at Man United (Warren Joyce) has kept in constant contact with him with him also watching him on occasions with him giving the 20-year-old ‘good feedback’ on how he’s performed.

A return to play at U21 level for Man United isn’t his aim, the striker who has scored seven-goals in his 23-matches so far, he finished by making it clear he’s looking to break into the first-team.

If that doesn’t happen at United he’ll consider another loan.

‘League games are totally different to Under-21s games and it’s a completely different environment, one that I have relished. I’ll go back to United at the end of the season and try and push my way into the first team, if not then maybe another loan spell away from the club.’

A good positive attitude but it would be a surprise if he was playing in the Premier League next season, wouldn’t it?
