Nathaniel Clyne is not close to joining Manchester United, according to Crystal Palace manager Nathaniel Clyne.

Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman has played down speculation that Nathaniel Clyne is nearing a move to Manchester United.

The full-back, who is out of contract in the summer, has been linked with a move to the Red Devils since turning out against them in a Carling Cup tie earlier this season.

However, Freedman has insisted that he has received no enquiries for the 20-year-old.

"There has not been one single approach for one of my players so, so far so good," Freedman said.

"Professionally, young Nathaniel is fine and our relationship is fantastic. If he is fit and he is on form then he will play as he has contributed to the team's defence.

"We have kept many clean sheets this year and he has been involved in them."

Clyne has also been the subject of reported interest from Liverpool.
