11:31 The other piece of big news that broke while the draw was in progress is a new contract for Ryan Giggs. (AB)

Since I left in 2003, I've not returned to play at Old Trafford. Seven years have gone by and I'd like for that to happen. Me against Manchester United, it would be beautiful, wouldn't it?" (BH)

12:47 I've just been doing an interview with David Stowell. He's the MUTV commentator for the Academy and Reserve sides. I was speaking to him about the FA Youth cup win over Birmingham, and his take on the team's chances of lifting the trophy. His answers will be in the next edition of Inside United.
