January transfer window 2019: Premier League transfer round-up

Giuseppe Rossi is training with former side Manchester United as he looks for a new club.

The 31-year-old is a product of the Old Trafford giants' youth system, making 14 appearances in all competitions under Sir Alex Ferguson before making a permanent switch to Villarreal in 2007.

However, Rossi's ascent was detailed by a string of major knee injuries and the American-born forward has been without a club since leaving Genoa in the summer.

The Italy international, who it was announced in October avoided a ban following a positive test for dorzolamide, is now building up his fitness back at United.

It is understood that former United teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer invited Rossi to train with the side at the Aon Training Complex in order to help earn a move elsewhere.
