Fletcher has started just five games in all competitions this season with his only Premier League start since August coming in the 1-1 draw at Aston Villa in December.

Louis van Gaal gave little away regarding the future of Darren Fletcher

West Ham, West Brom and Spanish club Valencia have all been linked with a move for the 30-year-old but Van Gaal refused to be drawn too much on Fletcher's future.

"He is a Manchester United player and that’s the update," said Van Gaal.

"Darren Fletcher is the only Manchester United player who has won the FA Cup in my selection and he is also my captain - one of the three. That’s the update I can give.”

When pressed on a possible exit for Fletcher before the transfer window closes on February 2, Van Gaal added: “You are not sure. Because it’s the transfer month, so you never know.”

However West Brom boss Pulis confirmed his interest in bringing Fletcher to The Hawthorns, although he revealed the Baggies are not the only club keen to strike a deal.

"Darren is talking to three or four clubs and he will make his decision when it's right to make his decision," said Pulis.

"We've shown an interest, other clubs have shown an interest and he has got to sit down and make that decision so we will have to wait and see."
