Manchester United's Kieran Richardson has admitted for the first time that he may have to leave Old Trafford if he is to secure first-team football.

England midfielder Richardson has consistently been connected with a move away from the Premiership champions after failing to hold down a regular place in the United side last season.

The 22-year-old has most recently been reportedly linked with a move to team up with former United skipper, and current Sunderland manager, Roy Keane at the Stadium of Light.

However Richardson has said he will fight for his place in the United team, but has not ruled out a move elsewhere.

"If you're getting older and not playing on a regular basis, you do have to think about moving on," he told the News of The World.

"I've already said I want to carry on being a United player.

"I don't know about going out on loan because I've done that already."

Meanwhile, midfielder Marouane Fellaini has ruled out a move to Old Trafford by signing a new contract with Standard Liege.

According to Roger Henrotay, the Belgian Under 21 star's agent, Fellaini snubbed a possible move to England because of his desire for first-team football.

"United phoned us yet again urging Marouane not to sign for Standard," Henrotay told the News of The World.

"But we did not obey them.

"The lad is young and he will get better still, but only if he plays first-team football.

"He'd have earned a lot more money had he gone to Old Trafford but he wouldn't have played."
