Manchester United midfielder Tosin Kehinde could make his debut for the club against West Brom after being promoted into first-team training after Maraoune Fellaini was ruled out until 2018.

The Belgian midfielder spent a month on the sidelines with a medial collateral ligament injury in October but he’s aggravated the problem after returning ahead of schedule and is now expected to miss the festive period.

Kehinde, 19, has spent the bulk of the campaign with United’s U23s side and is yet to make his debut for the club.

The Nigerian midfielder is primarily used in a central midfield position and could take a place on the bench for United’s visit to West Brom on Sunday.

The teenager tweeted on Friday afternoon to confirm that he had participated in first-team training as United prepare for their trip to the Midlands.

Good session with the first team today. ??

‘Good session with the first team today,’ said Kehinde.

Scott McTominay was selected ahead of Ander Herrera to partner Nemanja Matic against Bournemouth in midweek and Paul Pogba is serving the last of his three-game ban against the Baggies.

United will be hoping Tottenham can take points off Manchester City during their clash at the Etihad on Saturday as the Red Devils chase down their neighbours’ 14 point lead.
