David Moyes has revealed that he will allow several players to leave Manchester United, if the right offer is made for their services in January.

The former Everton manager replaced Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford and his reigning champions sit ninth in the league table with 22 points from 15 games. United are without a win in the league for four games, losing the last two against Everton and Newcastle United.

United legend Peter Schmeichel has urged Moyes to offload five or six first team players in the mid-season transfer window, bringing in new faces to Old Trafford in January. The 50-year-old Scot admitted that he was open to allowing some players leave in the summer.

"I think that we're getting to a situation now where there are a few players here, who, if we got the right offer for them, we would let them go," Moyes explained.

"I don't know if we'd loan anyone. Would we sell? If the right offers were there, we'd probably look at it. I've tried to make sure I've given an opportunity to everybody so far this season.

"Not everyone has had as many games as they would have liked, but I have wanted to see everybody play. Maybe we would have looked to have moved a few players out last summer, but you can only do that if you get clubs that come in and are interested," United manager added.

The Mirror earlier reported that the English champions are looking for a January clear-out with England international Ashley Young and Anderson heading the list. United are looking to offload the duo on either permanent deals or loan moves, depending on interest from other clubs.

Young has started only three league games while Anderson has made just four appearances in the league under Moyes. The same report also claims that the former Everton boss will let Alexander Buttner leave, if he manages to land Leighton Baines from the Merseyside club.

Moyes claims United have the cash to spend big and are closing in on a major signing in the winter transfer window.
