United signed experienced defender Clint Hill on a short-term deal at the end of September 2017.

Hill started his career as a youngster with Tranmere Rovers and went on to make over 150 appearances at Prenton Park.

Oldham Athletic snapped him up for a reported £250,000 fee in 2002 but a broken leg ended his season with the Latics just before Christmas that year.

A move to Championship outfit Stoke City followed and he spent five years at the Britannia Stadium where he battled his way into the side having recovered from an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Neil Warnock swooped to capture his signature for Crystal Palace in January 2008 and helped the Eagles to a Championship play-off place at the end of that season.

He followed Warnock to Queens Park Rangers in the summer of 2010 and became a favourite at Loftus Road as he notched up over 200 appearances.

He was handed the captain’s armband when Harry Redknapp took over the reins in 2013.

The big defender spent last season with Scottish Premier League giants Rangers and achieved hero status when he bagged a late equaliser in the March 2017 1-1 Old Firm draw with Celtic.
