Manchester United transfer target Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall has claimed that he’s watched every single clip of his ‘idol’ Paul Scholes on YouTube.

Dewsbury-Hall, 25, has emerged as a surprise potential target for United after a report from Jacon Bens emerged on Friday morning.

The information stated that the club had made an initial enquiry to the Leicester City player’s camp and that he could cost between £25-40 million.

Dewsbury-Hall has played 42 games for the Championship side this term, registering 10 goals and 13 assists. Last season, in the Premier League, he made 31 appearances and earned just four goal contributions.

However, with Erik ten Hag’s midfield looking to be stripped in the summer transfer window, the 25-year-old could provide depth in that area of the pitch.

Dewsbury-Hall is also a boyhood United fan, which is always a plus for a potential signing. He has previously explained his love for club legend Paul Scholes.

Speaking in 2022 via SportBible, Dewsbury-Hall said: “I just think he [Scholes] was a master. He was someone I looked up to growing up. I was always trying to get little things off him and add them to my game.

“He was always the main man for me. He must have had five or six eyes in his head. Some of the things he used to do, you’d think, ‘How did he see that?’

“Paul Scholes was my idol. It’s always been him, and it always will be. Everything he did was unbelievable. I think he is one of the best midfielders of all time.

“There are parts of our games that are similar as well. We’re both small and we’re both technically sound.

“I think I’ve seen every clip you could probably watch of Scholes on YouTube.”

Alongside midfield, United will also be looking to strengthen their backline and centre-forward areas in the summer window.
