SPECULATION is growing in England linking Seamus Coleman with a move to Manchester United.

Coleman has been in scintillating form this season, scoring six goals for Everton, and sitting as the top-scoring defender in the Premier League.


David Moyes, the United manager, has been strongly linked for a move for Everton left-back Leighton Baines, but there is now a suggestion that the Scot could switch his attention to the Toffees’ right-back, Coleman.

In January 2009, Moyes snapped up Coleman from League of Ireland side Sligo Rovers for a bargain £60,000.

Now, Moyes is rumoured to giving serious consideration to tabling a £15million bid for the Killybegs man.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has already indicated that he puts Coleman’s value in the £25million bracket, but United could test the water.

Irish international Coleman is in excellent form for sixth-placed Everton, who play away at West Bromwich Albion tomorrow night, when a win would see them leapfrog Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool to go fourth.

Coleman has also been linked to Arsenal, who are expected to see right-back Bacary Sagna go to Galatasary.
