Kinnear was hoping for a quick response from two key players who were made offers in December, although he knows he will have to wait until the end of the season for a decision from Michael Owen.

But Harper must have seen speculation of Kinnear looking to replace Shay Given ... should Man City make an offer United cannot refuse.

Harper has sat waiting for his opportunity to shine, and he would at least expect a run in the team should Given go.

But with interest shown in goalkeepers at Celtic and Coventry City, it must be make Harper ... and those in the queue like Tim Krul and Fraser Foster ... wonder about their futures.

Harper has said little apart from backing calls for Mike Ashley to strengthen the squad, but he has still not signed the offer put to him.
