Fans want Paterson to go

The Northern Ireland international was United's top scorer last season with 14 goals, and wants to move to a Championship club this summer.

Two bids from Burnley have been rejected and a written transfer request from the player has been turned down. He has accused the club of "going back on their word".

Over three days we invited users of the site to tell us if they think the club should sell the player or force him to stay - and an overwhelming majority believe he should be sold.

A total of 85.7 per cent of voters said that he should be sold, while just 14.3 per cent want to see him stay at Glanford Park.
