United linked with Ukrainians

The main target is believed to be Dynamo’s defensive midfielder Andriy Husin who was reported to be the subject of a bid during this year’s January transfer window, although Shakhtar defender Anatoliy Tymoschuk apparently also caught the eye.

Sky Sports quote Woods as claiming: "We always follow the leading clubs in Ukraine.

"We have tapes and try not to miss a single game by Dynamo or Shakhtar, and their face-to-face clash is the event."

The report further claimed that Shakhtar’s Nigerian World Cup star Julius Aghahowa had also impressed the scout.
