Blackpool target season-long loan deal for Manchester United youngster Ritchie De Laet

Blackpool are interested in taking Manchester United defender Ritchie De Laet on loan, according to a report from The Daily Star Sunday.

The Seasiders apparently face competition for the young Belgian's services from Championship outfit Burnley.

The 21-year-old signed a new deal at Old Trafford towards the end of last season.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to be keen to see him gather first team experience with a loan spell away from the club.
