Sheffield United manager David Weir believes that it is a good thing for Harry Maguire to be linked with big clubs such as Manchester United.

Sheffield United manager David Weir has said that he is unaware of any interest from Manchester United in defender Harry Maguire.

The 20-year-old, who made his debut for England Under-21s in a friendly against Northern Ireland last November, is rumoured to be a target for the Premier League champions.

Weir welcomed interest in the young centre-back, despite hearing nothing from Red Devils boss David Moyes, for whom he worked as a player and a coach at Everton.

"I don't know anything about it, but it is great news for our players to be linked with such big clubs," Sky Sports News quotes the 43-year-old as saying.

"Harry has a lot of attributes, for a young lad he has played a lot of games, and I would not be surprised if clubs were looking at him. But we don't want to lose him."

Maguire made his professional debut as a half-time substitute against Cardiff City in April 2011 and went on to win the man of the match award.
