United academy graduate Mainoo has been capped by England at under-17s, under-18s and under-19s level.

The Stockport-born teenager made his first Manchester United start against Everton in November and has gone on to make a further 19 appearances.

He scored his first goal for the club in a FA Cup fourth-round win at Newport at the end of January, before netting a late winner against Wolves in the Premier League four days later.
